Induced Thermoluminescence. Mateo Naranjo. A brief overview of TL. What is TL? -It’s the thermally stimulated emission of light from a material What are the requirements for TL to happen?
-It’s the thermally stimulated emission of light from a material

-Material must have been exposed to radiation
-It must be stimulated by heating
