Abstract : Several thermoluminescence phosphors were irradiated at elevated temperatures to determine if the thermoluminescence output was increased. Of the phosphors tested, only LiF:Mg showed any significant increase. Part of this increase can be attributed to annealing effects in the phosphor before and after exposure, while the remainder appears to be intrinsic to the phosphor temperature during the deposition of energy.
