    • Abstract

       

      Doping with alkaline earth impurities converts the alkali halides into very efficient phosphors. LiF doped with Mg is extensively used in radiation dosimetry. However, the phenomenon of thermoluminescence in these materials is far from clear. LiF-tld 100 is artificially separated from the rest of the alkali halide phosphors. The available experimental data are not fully utilised in building a model for thermoluminescence processes. In this review, thermoluminescence properties of LiF-tld 100 and other alkali halide phosphors are discussed. The comparative study which points out several common points could be useful in understanding thetl processes in these phosphors.
