Abstract

The polycrystalline sample of KMgPO4:Tb3+(KMPT) phosphor was successfully synthesized by using solid state method. The X-ray powder diffraction, photoluminescence (PL) emission and excitation spectra, thermoluminescence (TL) and optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) were thoroughly measured. The PL spectra of as-prepared KMPT phosphor showed characteristic blue-green emission, when excited by 226nm under UV excitation. The optimum PL intensity was observed at 0.01mol concentration of Tb3+ions and this phosphor used for remaining studies. The TL glow curve of KMPT phosphor consist two characterized peaks, which were deconvoluted and the kinetic parameters i.e. trap depth or activation energy, order of kinetic and frequency factor determined by using peak shape method. TL sensitivity of KMPT phosphors was found to be 10% than that of TL sensitivity of TLD-500 phosphor. The OSL sensitivity of KMPT was 0.92 times than OSL sensitivity of α-Al2O3:C phosphor. The OSL decay curve KMPT phosphor consist of three component having photoionization cross sections were found to be 0.26548×10−17, 0.220×10−17, 2.92×10−17 cm2. The KMPT phosphor showed linear dose response in range 100–6000mGy and fading of KMPT phosphor was found to be 31% in 15 days. The Minimum detectable dose (MDD) was found to be 0.39mGy with corresponding 3σ back ground. The phosphor shows good dosimetry properties such as sensitivity, dose response, MDD, Fading.
