Luminescence Research Laboratory
The general theme of our research is the study of point-defects in insulating materials using luminescence methods. Our current interest concerns the use of time-resolved optical stimulation (TR-OSL) to study dynamics of luminescence processes in quartz and the ultra-sensitive dosimeter, a-Al2O3:C. We also have projects using thermoluminescence to study luminescence properties of quartz, a-Al2O3:C, ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene and various materials of interest in phosphor research.
