Heating rate effect on thermoluminescence glow curves of LiF:Mg,Cu,P+PTFE phosphor.


PMID 21683603

Abstract

The influence of heating rate on the thermoluminescence (TL) property of LiF:Mg,Cu,P+PTFE was analyzed. The activation energy and the frequency factor as a function of the heating rate were determined. The kinetic parameters and their dependence on the heating rate were evaluated using the sequential quadratic programming glow curve deconvolution (SQPGCD). The results showed that as the heating rate increases, the peak intensity at the maximum (I(M)) decreases and shifts to higher temperature; similar behavior of the kinetics parameters was observed.
