The aim of this research paper is to find which polymer composite of Lead Iodide with Poly Methyl Methacrylate is better as room temperature X-ray detector. The polymer composites as X-ray detectors are compared on the basis of the criterions such as Imax/Imin and X-ray switching graphs. The conductivity measures i.e. current vs. time characteristics are measured with Keithley apparatus. The ratio of maximum to minimum current is found from the current vs. time graphs. In this research, the polymer composites with Poly Methyl Methacrylate (PMMA) are compared in term of Imax/Imin, bandgap and mobility lifetime product of charge carriers. And it is found that which concentration of polymer composite is better experimentally in comparison of others. Also this finding as room temperature detector will be helpful as comparison to earlier used low temperature detectors.
