The ion size effect on the thermoluminescence (TL) glow curve structure of europium doped binary mixed alkali halide crystals samples was investigated as a function of molar composition. A linear expression, that relates the characteristic glow peak temperature to the ionic size, was found and used to predict the TL temperature shifts associated to the size of Cl- and Br- anions in a binary mixed alkali halide sample at a given composition. In addition the behavior of the mixed binary crystals with components KCl and RbCl doped with divalent Europium is presented. © 2007 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA.
