Thermoluminescence of a mixed rare earth phosphate powder La1−x−yCexTbyPO4

Abstract : The properties of thermoluminescence (TL) observed from various mixed rare earth (RE) phosphate powders La1−x−yCexTbyPO4 are reported. TL peaks appear around −175°C, −135°C, −80°C, −35°C and +25°C and the TL emission spectra of La1−x−yCexTbyPO4 are mainly composed of characteristic line transitions of Tb3+ ions. The results show that the co-doping with Ce3+ is not required to observe the TL emission of Tb3+. A model for the recombination mechanisms of the various TL peaks is discussed.
