In this work, we report on the solid-state reaction synthesis of SrZrO3 phosphors, and their beta particle irradiation excited thermoluminescence (TL) characterization. X-ray diffraction data confirmed the obtention of the orthorhombic phase of SrZrO3. Through computational glow curve deconvolution, the whole glow curve was resolved into six individual first order kinetics peaks. This is the first report concerning the usefulness of SrZrO3 as TL dosimeter. The synthesized phosphors exhibit TL emission from below 100 °C up to above 300 °C, being the most intense TL between 200 and 300 °C, as well as a remarkable reproducibility of the TL response in repeated irradiation-TL readout cycles.
