Abstract

In this paper some of the many theoretical models dealing with characteristics of TL materials are discussed. Special attention is given to some of the models dealing with the effects of ionisation density, that is Modified Track Structure Theory (MTST) and Microdosimetric Track Structure Theory (MTT) for the calculation of Heavy Charged Particle relative TL efficiencies, as well as solid-state models based on conduction band/valence band theory. Failures, successes, conflicts and trends are highlighted as well as a peek into future avenues of research for dosimetric TL materials.
