Abstract

The response to ionizing radiation of LiF and TLD 100 dosimeter grade LiF, following various amounts of plastic deformation, has been investigated. The decrease in thermoluminescence with increasing plastic strain has been interpreted in terms of two models: (a) the thermoluminescence traps are destroyed by intersection or interaction with dislocation lines; (b) new thermoluminescence traps are created by dislocation intersections which then compete with the previously existing traps. The latter model is considered the more likely.
