Abstract

Low temperature thermoluminescence of GAGG:Ce and LuAG:Pr scintillator crystals has been studied by means of the Tmax-Tstop method. It is shown that the glow curves of both materials are superpositions of discrete glow peaks and broad bands due to quasi-continuous Gaussian distributions of trapping levels. A model function has been built and trap parameters have been evaluated.
