Paper Abstract

AlN-Y2O3 ceramics is studied as a material for application in the area of ultraviolet radiation (UVR) dosimetry. The properties of optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) and thermally stimulated luminescence (TL) revealed by AlN ceramics are characterized and considered for practical application. A special attention is devoted to studies of the spectral properties of the material, including stimulated luminescence. Spectral properties of the material make it potentially suitable for dosimetric application both in UV-C region (200-290 nm), where it has the maximum sensitivity, and in UV-B+UV-A (290-350 nm) region, where the spectral behavior of its sensitivity coincides rather well with that of the human skin.
