Om Handbook of Thermoluminescence
This second edition of the Handbook of Thermoluminescence enlarges on all the subjects which were treated in the first edition and adds further arguments, including the theory of thermoluminescent dose measurement, several examples concerning the kinetics parameters determination using various methods such as peak shape, isothermal decay, and so on. A special section is devoted to food irradiation, an important subject at the present time, and to the thermoluminescent characterization of the minerals extracted from the irradiated food. Another new section is devoted to the thermoluminescent phosphors and their main characteristics.The analytical treatments of the various thermoluminescent models are fully developed. As in the first edition, the arguments are given in alphabetical order to ease research. This second edition therefore aims to provide real practical support for researchers, students and personnel involved in radiation protection services, as well as in medical applications.Contents:Area Measurement MethodBasic Equation of Radiation Dosimetry by ThermoluminescenceCalibration Procedure for a Batch of Thermoluminescent DosimetersDefectsEnvironmental Dose RateFading FactorGarlick-Gibson ModelHeating Rate EffectsIsothermal Decay MethodKeating MethodLuminescence Dosimetric TechniquesMetastable StateNumerical Curve Fitting MethodOptical FadingPeak Shape MethodPeak ShiftQuasiequilibrium ConditionRecombination ProcessesSolid State DosimetersThermoluminescenceVarious Heating Rates MethodZirconium OxideAppendixReadership: Researchers in applied physics, theoretical physics, condensed matter physics, new materials and glasses, insulators and optical materials.
