Kinetic analysis of monochromatic TL curves

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the kinetic analysis of thermoluminescence, 'monochromatic' curves are more useful and give more reliable information than the polychromatic glow curve. This is demonstrated for two specific cases. In one case (TL of albite) the kinetic analysis of monochromatic curves did not enable us to determine whether the red and blue emissions involved one recombination process or two independent processes. In the second case (TL of zircon) the prominent 110°C peak was found to involve three independent recombination processes.
