Previous studies have reported a significant residual signal in LiF:Cu,Mg,P (GR-200) which arises from a peak at 270°C with an intensity of 7-50% relative to the main dosimetry peak. A method has been found to prepare LiF:Cu,Mg,P in two forms; one with a TL sensitivity 30-40 times greater than TLD-100 but with a residual signal of only 2-3% following 240°C for 10 s readout, the other, even more optimised material (SSD-NR), with a sensitivity 15-20 times that of TLD-100 but with the 270°C peak almost totally eliminated, leading to a residual signal of 0.25-0.5%.
