On the Initial Rise Method for Kinetic Analysis in Thermally Stimulated Luminescence


Several methods are known for the evaluation of the main kinetic parameters related to a thermally stimulated luminescence popularly known as thermoluminescence (TL). Among them Initial rise method is known as the simplest experimental procedure to obtain the activation energy. In this paper, a critical appraisal of the works on Initial rise and related methods in the literature is made. In spite of some inherent difficulties the method has been extensively used because of its very weak dependence on the order of kinetics.
Keywords: Thermoluminescence, Initial rise method, Activation energy, Order of kinetics
