Abstract

In this paper, TL characteristics and glow curves of alpha-Al2O3:C dosimeter, known as TLD-500, were analyzed using different methods and softwares. The effect of heating rate (HR) and low dose (from to cGy up to 5o cGy) on TL glow curves of alpha-Al2O3:C chips have been investigated after beta-irradiation. TL kinetic parameters were also calculated by using computerized glow curve deconvolution (CGCD), peak shape (PS), various heating rate (VHR) and three points (TP) methods. Furthermore, using Mathematica software, all TL glow curves of TLD-500 were decomposed in order to compare with the results of other methods and simulated after exposed different beta doses.
