Europium-doped KCl1-x-Brx mixed crystals have been studied as a selective ultraviolet (UV) detector material in the actinometric region (200-300 nm). Thermoluminescence glow curves of room-temperature UV-irradiated samples were analyzed as a function of composition x and irradiation wavelength. A thermoluminescence enhancement, relative to the pure KCl and KBr end components is found; for 210-300 nm irradiation the KCl40Br60:Eu2+ solid solution presents a significant increase in thermoluminescence efficiency.
