Abstract

The thermoluminescent (TL) properties such as glow curve structure, relative thermoluminescence sensitivity, dose response linearity of lithium fluoride thermoluminescent dosimeters (LiF)-Li-6: Ti, Mg (TLD-600) and (7) LiF: Ti, Mg (TLD-700) are investigated after irradiation Cf-252 neutron+gamma and Sr-90-Y-90 beta sources at room temperature and then the obtained results are compared. The kinetic parameters, namely the order of kinetics b, activation energy E-a a and the frequency factor s, are calculated using the computerized glow curve deconvolution (CGCD) program. The effect of heating rate on the glow curves of dosimeters is also investigated. The maximum TL peak intensities and the total area under the glow curves decrease with the increasing heating rate. There is no agreement with the kinetic parameters calculated by the CGCD program for both radiation sources.
