Relative response of TL and component-resolved OSL to alpha and beta radiations in annealed sedimentary quartz
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2011-10)
Knowledge of the relative luminescence response to alpha and beta radiation is very important in TL and OSL dating. In the present study the relative alpha to beta response is studied in a sedimentary quartz sample, ...
Thermal quenching of thermoluminescence in quartz samples of various origin
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2011-03-15)
The effect of thermal quenching stands among the most important properties in the thermoluminescence (TL) of quartz on which many applications of TL are based. Since the quartz samples used in various applications are all ...
Thermoluminescence as a probe in bioactivity studies; the case of 58S sol-gel bioactive glass
(IOP PUBLISHING LTD, 2011-10-05)
The formation of a carbonated hydroxyapatite (HCAp) layer on the surface of bioactive materials is the main reaction that takes place upon their immersion in physiological fluids. To date, all techniques used for the ...
Dissolution and subsequent re-crystallization as zeroing mechanism, thermal properties and component resolved dose response of salt (NaCl) for retrospective dosimetry
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2011-09)
In the present study we report dosimetric properties of iodized salt aiming at using it as an accidental luminescent dosimeter. It was found that the very good sensitivity of its main dosimetric peak is strongly affected ...
