Erbium-activated lithium niobate; 1, 2, and 4 mol% (LN-1, LN-2 and LN-4 respectively) were synthesized by solid-state method and their thermoluminescent (TL) properties were analyzed. The glow curve of LN-4 showed a maximum at 177 °C and its linear dose-response interval ranged from 50 to 350 Gy. Its TL intensity was two orders of magnitude greater compared to those of pure lithium niobate (LN), LN-1 and LN-2. We conclude that LN-4 is an interesting material for TL dosimetry applications.
