Title: Thermoluminescence studies of solid-state reaction derived and γ-irradiated SrGd{sub 2}O{sub 4}: Eu{sup 3+} phosphor

Abstract

Graphical abstract: Effect of heating rates on TL glow curve for SrGd2O4: Eu3+ doped samples exposed with 3 kGy gamma dose. - Highlights: • SrGd{sub 2}O{sub 4}: Eu{sup 3+} phosphors have been prepared by solid-state reaction method. • The TL properties of γ-irradiated SrGd{sub 2}O{sub 4}: Eu{sup 3+} phosphors were studied in detail. • Linear dose response, less fading and high reusability of SrGd{sub 2}O{sub 4}:Eu{sup 3+} phosphors unfold its applicability as TL dosimeters. - Abstract: Eu{sup 3+} activated SrGd{sub 2}O{sub 4} phosphors were synthesized by conventional high-temperature solid-state reaction method in air ambiance. The structural and thermoluminescence (TL) aspects of as-prepared phosphors were explored by XRD, FESEM, TEM and TL techniques. Orthorhombic phase formation and agglomerated ginger-like morphology of as-synthesized SrGd{sub 2}O{sub 4}: Eu{sup 3+} samples were unfolded by X-ray diffraction (XRD) and microscopic studies, respectively. The effect of impurity (Eu{sup 3+}) contents and heating rates for the TL glow curves was also studied. The TL glow curve of γ-irradiated SrGd{sub 2}O{sub 4}: Eu{sup 3+} shows two well-resolved peaks at 393 K and 598 K with a shoulder at 537 K. The Linear behaviour of as-formed SrGd{sub 2}O{sub 4}: Eu{sup 3+} samples are observed in the dose range 500more » Gy–3 kGy. The different trapping parameters were calculated by employing computerized glow curve deconvolution (CGCD) methods Linear dose response, less fading and high reproducibility of SrGd{sub 2}O{sub 4}: Eu{sup 3+} samples broadly indicated its suitability for TL dosimetry applications.« less
