Abstract

Equipment which permits quantitative recording of the thermoluminescence emitted by samples with a high degree of reproducibility and sensitivity has been developed. The equipment operates over the temperature range from 25 degrees C. to 600 degrees C. at rates from 10 degrees C. per minute to 100 degrees C. per minute. The apparatus has high light-detection sensitivity and broad spectral response. The construction combines reliability and flexibility with simplicity of operation. Not more than 50 milligrams of sample is ordinarily required. An analysis of the instrumental and physical factors which determine the precision of making glow curves is made to evaluate the requirements for each section of the apparatus.
