The thermoluminescence glow curves of LiF:Mg,Ti: characteristics and mechanisms

Yigal Shalom Horowitz, Leonid Oster

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The features of the glow curves of LiF:Mg,Ti are dependent on many parameters of irradiation, storage, ionisation density and readout. These are presented herein with emphasis on their complexity. Successful applications require some understanding of the great diversity of the glow curves. Glow curve analysis/deconvolution in order to better understand the mechanisms is a 'tricky business' even with Tm-Tstop analysis. In the theoretical framework of spatially correlated trapping and luminescent centres, a mechanism is described which simulates the behaviour of composite peak 5 at different cooling rates and following photon bleaching at 3.65 eV.
