A glow curve analysis has been carried out to study the response of some LiF dosimeters when irradiated by radiations with different LET. The aim of the study was to have a better understanding of the role of material characteristics in determining their glow curve response when irradiated with [sup 60]Co gamma rays and proton beams. Glow curves for TLD-100 and GR-200 LiF dosimeters have been analyzed and deconvolution of the peak structure has been performed within the frame of first order kinetics. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
