Title: 100 MeV swift Si{sup 7+} ion induced thermoluminescence studies of nanocrystalline erbium doped ZrO{sub 2}

Pure and erbium (1mol%) doped nanocrystalline ZrO{sub 2} is synthesized by combustion technique. Thermoluminescence (TL) properties ZrO{sub 2}pellets annealed at 873 K and irradiated by 100 MeV swift Si{sup 7+} ion for various fluence are recorded. The evolution crystalline structure and crystallite size are done using by XRD data. Two TL glow curves, a well resolved one peak at ∼420 K and an unresolved with peak at ∼598 K are observed. TL intensity increases up to 3×10{sup 12} ions cm{sup −2} beyond which the TL intensity decreases. The glow peak shape method is used to calculate the TL trap parameter and discussed in this paper.
