The thermoluminescense (TL) behavior of solid solutions of cadmium and manganese doped single crystals under γ-irradiation is reported. Various compositions of single crystals of NaCl doped with Cd2+ and Mn2+ have been irradiated with ionizing radiation. The increase in the glow curve was followed as a function of the F-centers produced by the dose. The analysis shows the potential use of these materials as dosimeters.
