Preliminary results of an inter-laboratory collaborative work on the application of computerised glow curve analysis to TL personal dosimetry are presented. Very simple analysis methods have proved to be useful for the evaluation of glow curves similar to those encountered in the dosimetric control of radiation workers. A first result obtained in the study has been the possibility of simplifying the TL working procedures by eliminating pre-annealing or pre-heating steps employed in conventional systems to avoid low temperature peaks. The presence of these unwanted peaks can be detected by the computerised evaluation methods, discriminating their contribution to the dosimetric TL data.
