ZnS–ZnO thermoluminescent phosphors have been synthesized by a low-cost chemical method. They exhibit a thermoluminescence response increasing linearly as a function of β-irradiation dose, from 25 Gy to 1600 Gy, without saturation. The glow curves indicate that these phosphors could be useful for both thermoluminescence and afterglow dosimetry.
