Abstract

Lithium tetraborate has been a scientific focus since 1960s by the courtesy of the thermoluminescence property it possesses. Moreover, it is utilized in surface acoustic wave apparatuses, in sensor sector and in laser technology owing to its non-linear optical characteristics. For the uses in thermoluminescence dosimetry lithium tetraborate is activated by addition of a variety of metals as dopants.
