Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


A method of extracting information about trapping levels in crystals by numerical curve fitting, known for first- and second-order kinetics curves, has now been extended to general-order kinetics glow peaks. This generalized method, suitable for use by digital computer, enables the evaluation of the activation energy as well as the kinetics order. The method has been used on thermoluminescence peaks of SrF2: Tb crystals. The results are compared with activation energies and kinetics orders found by other methods.
