BaSiF6 phosphor was synthesized by a gel combustion method. The crystalline size was found to be 54.17 +/- 4.36 nm using Williamson-Hall (W-H) approximation. The TL data collected by means of a combination of a commercial BG39 and HC575/25 filters was studied to evaluate basic kinetic parameters. Three TL glow peaks of BaSiF6 phosphors are centered at around 84, 190 and 322 degrees C. T-m-T-stop, various heating rate (VHR) and computerized glow-curve deconvolution (CGCD) method were utilized to analyse collected data. Our findings indicate that luminescence process in scrutinized material may obey second order kinetics. The TL dose response of the TL glow peaks exhibits a linear characteristic up to 100 Gy. Deconvolution of the glow curve reveals that the number of the component TL glow peaks in the complex glow curve is composed of well-isolated six overlapping glow peaks. The FOM value is 2.32.
