Abstract

Thermoluminescence dosimetry properties of novel MgO–CeO2 obtained by solution combustion synthesis in a glycine-nitrate process, are presented for the very first time. X-ray diffraction indicates the presence of cubic MgO and cerianite (CeO2) for the annealed powder samples. Dosimetry features such as linear behaviour of the dose response without saturation in the dose interval studied, as well as asymptotic behaviour of the thermoluminescent signal fading place MgO–CeO2 phosphor as a promising material for low-dose radiation dosimetry applications.
