Paper Abstract

Thermoluminescence (TL) is a powerful tool for studying trap structure of high-resistivity solids. However this phenomenon is especially known due to many practical applications in biology, industry, archaeology, etc. All the applications are based on the analysis of TL glow curves. For these purposes, relatively simple but credible methods are required. In this paper we consider the most acceptable trap model Taking advantage of some, recently derived analytical formulae, we present some new methods for determining trap parameters, especially the activation energy, from TL spectra. The methods are based on the analysis of the shape of TL curves and isothermal decay measurements.
