Abstract

This work presents the structural characteristics and the dosimetric properties under ionizing radiation of the lithium silicate (LSO) (LSO) phosphor. The structure of the synthesized material was determined by X-ray diffraction (XRD) method and Rietveld refinement method. The dosimetric properties of LSOLSO in the form of pellets were studied by thermoluminescence (TL) under the effect of different doses of γ-irradiation. The phosphor exhibited a TL emission curve with four TL peaks centered at 100, 182, 250 and 290 °C, with a light emission band centered at 385 nm. The TL dose-dependent γ-radiation dose response of the TL peak at 182 °C was linear in the low-dose region, from the order of mGy to 50 Gy. In addition, the phosphor exhibits lower fading, good reproducibility, and sensitivity of the order of commercial TLD-100 dosimeters.
