Some accurate glow curve fitting functions for general and mixed order kinetics glow peaks are proposed and discussed. These mathematical expressions are used together with peak search and non-linear minimisation algorithms in order to provide a fast glow curve deconvolution for those materials which cannot be well fitted using first order kinetics. To test the accuracy of the proposed method, the result of the fitting of synthetic glow curves is compared with the original data giving negligible errors for values of parameters currently found in TL materials.
