A mixture of equal quantities of powdered LiF and NaF was doped with 0.2% each of Ti, Mg and Mn and heated to obtain a LiF+NaF
phosphor. After grinding and sieving, the thermoluminescent phosphor was used to obtain the thermoluminescence characteristics
such as the glow curve; the dose-response curve, sensitivity, reproducibility and linearity were all established. The main
goal was to introduce two new methods for the calculation of trap energy: the single-peak-differential and single-peak-integration
methods, both modifications of the basic method of Randall-Wilkins. The plots used to calculate the trap energy were In[(dα/dT)1/(1-α)]vs. 1/T and ln[ln(1-α)/(To-T)]vs. 1/T, respectively. These linear plots with slopes of (E/k) gave trap energies ofE=0.547 eV andE=0.551 eV, respectively.
