Summary and Info
Thermoluminescence (TL) and optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) are two of the most important techniques used in radiation dosimetry. They have extensive practical applications in the monitoring of personnel radiation exposure, in medical dosimetry, environmental dosimetry, spacecraft, nuclear reactors, food irradiation etc., and in geological /archaeological dating. Thermally and Optically Stimulated Luminescence: A Simulation Approach describes these phenomena, the relevant theoretical models and their prediction, using both approximations and numerical simulation. The authors concentrate on an alternative approach in which they simulate various experimental situations by numerically solving the relevant coupled differential equations for chosen sets of parameters. Opening with a historical overview and background theory, other chapters cover experimental measurements, dose dependence, dating procedures, trapping parameters, applications, radiophotoluminescence, and effects of ionization density. Designed for practitioners, researchers and graduate students in the field of radiation dosimetry, Thermally and Optically Stimulated Luminescence provides an essential synthesis of the major developments in modeling and numerical simulations of thermally and optically stimulated processes.Content: Chapter 1 Introduction (pages 1–6): Chapter 2 Theoretical Basis of Luminescence Phenomena (pages 7–28): Chapter 3 Basic Experimental Measurements (pages 29–37): Chapter 4 Thermoluminescence: The Equations Governing a TL Peak (pages 39–61): Chapter 5 Basic Methods for Evaluating Trapping Parameters (pages 63–77): Chapter 6 Additional Phenomena Associated with TL (pages 79–142): Chapter 7 Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) (pages 143–192): Chapter 8 Analytical and Approximate Expressions of Dose Dependence of TL and OSL (pages 193–244): Chapter 9 Simulations of TL and OSL in Dating Procedures (pages 245–277): Chapter 10 Advanced Methods for Evaluating Trapping Parameters (pages 279–295): Chapter 11 Simultaneous TL and Other Types of Measurements (pages 297–326): Chapter 12 Applications in Medical Physics (pages 327–340): Chapter 13 Radiophotoluminescence (pages 341–346): Chapter 14 Effects of Ionization Density on TL response (pages 347–356): Chapter 15 The Exponential Integral (pages 357–362):
