In the present work, we report the luminescence data obtained from heavy, barytes loaded, concrete containing many crystalline inclusions, extracted from a shielding block located at CERN. The use of both Thermoluminescence (TL) and Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) signals, resulting from a specific trap at about 200 degrees C, is investigated for retrospective dosimetry purposes. By applying thermal cleaning experiments the TL signal of interest was isolated. Basic TL and OSL properties as thermal and optical stability, repeatability and mainly the linearity of the TL and OSL signals as a function of beta dose were investigated. The implications of all these luminescence properties to retrospective dosimetry are also briefly discussed.
