Some behaviors of thermoluminescent lithium fluoride
University of New Brunswick
It is known that certain crystals exhibit luminescence after being irradiated and heated. Further there is a relation between the dose of radiation received and the luminescence observed. A series of experiments were performed to determine the effect of radiation dose, annealing time, beam quality and beam energy on the sensitivity of thermoluminescent dosimetry chips (TLDs). The chips in question were LiF doped with Magnesium and Titanium.
