LiMoO4: x Eu ceramic phosphors with x = 0.5, 1, 2, 3, 5, and 7 mol% were synthesized using a gel combustion method. X-ray diffraction (XRD) measurements confirmed a rhombohedral structure (space group R-3) of synthesized compounds. Following irradiation with 50 Gy beta dose, the sample doped with 5 mol% Eu exhibited the highest integrated thermoluminescence (TL) intensity. In order to evaluate dose-response, samples were irradiated with beta radiation for 10-1000 Gy. TL intensity with 1000 Gy dose without saturation yielded the highest integrated value. Different methods were employed to determine the number of peaks, the trap structure, and the kinetic parameters of the thermoluminescence glow curve of Eu doped Li2MoO4: the Hoogenstraaten method, the Booth-Bohun-Parfianovitch method, the initial rise method (IR), combined with the T-M-T-stop experiment, various heating rates (VHR), and glow curve fitting with two different software packages. Based on the glow curve deconvolution obtained using both software packages, the component TL glow peaks present in the complex glow curve are composed of well-isolated nine overlapping glow peaks. Two software packages have shown quite similar activation energies and frequency factors.
