Abstract

A model is described for the calculation of multipeak glow curves. A set of (km+jm+2) equations are presented which describe the flow of electrons and holes between km different electron trapping levels, jm different hole trapping levels and the conduction and valence bands. The model can be applied to complex cases where glow curves result from both electron and hole transport. A computer program has been written to solve the system of equations numerically. Calculated glow curves for a number of interesting cases are presented and some other applications of the model are briefly discussed.
