Abstract

A non-radiation-induced thermoluminescence effect in europium doped potassium chloride samples is investigated. A glow peak observed at 135°C produced by this thermoluminescence process was carefully studied and found to be caused by the dissolution of the Eu2+ precipitated phase nucleated in annealed crystals at temperatures in the range 25-100°C.
