Abstract : The relative magnitudes of the capture cross-sections for mobile electrons of luminescence centres and two species of traps are calculated from the shape of the thermoluminescence glow peaks of sodium nitrate and the viriation of the peak intensities as a function of radiation dose. The results obtained imply that the initial ionization takes place at the trapping centers. (Author)
