Lyu, T. (author)
In this thesis, we have studied two types of charge carrier capturing and detrapping processes: (a) electron capturing and electron liberation; (b) hole<br/>capturing and hole liberation. Both the (a) and (b) processes can be utilized for the rational design of afterglow and storage phosphors in different compounds.

In many aspects measurement of the α/β ratio has advantages over other methods. It provides higher precision and higher density of excitation than is available with Compton or photoelectric effect electrons. It has been shown that the α/β ratio follows the same trends and patterns as previously found for nonproportionality of electron/ gamma...

In this thesis, two different charge carrier trapping and detrapping processes are<br/>investigated: (1) electron trapping and electron release; (2) hole trapping and hole<br/>release. Both of these two processes can be used to “deliberate design” afterglow<br/>phosphors or storage materials.

Scintillation materials convert high-energy radiation into many visible photons and, in combination with a photodetector, are used as ionizing radiation detectors. Since the discovery of ionizing radiation, there have been intensive research efforts in finding new, better performing scintillators, resulting in the development of a large variety...

A study of fast scintillating materials to be applied in future generations positron emission tomography (PET) scanners. The aspects that govern the timing resolution achievable with scintillating crystals were evaluated. This was studied experimentially, using very advanced high speed facilities like a 100 ps resolution pulsed X-ray generator,...

Photovoltaic devices are a widely available, long lasting means of generating sustainable energy. Unfortunately, the integration of such devices into society is to date still limited. This is in part due to the much less than optimal efficiency of conversion of sunlight to electricity, but also by the physical limitations of integrating...

This thesis comprises analyses of mineral physics with an application in geology and archeology. The thesis contributes to the development of feldspar luminescence dating methods in order to extend the applicable age range of feldspar luminescence dating in the Quaternary (last 2.6 Ma). The research is divided into three parts: 1) Understanding...

Scintillators are used for the detection of ionizing radiation. Despite decades of intensive search and numerous compounds discovered, there is still a need for materials with improved properties. Recently, several new scintillators with excellent light yield, energy resolution, and proportionality have been discovered. Among them are Eu2+ doped...

Quarati, F.G.A. (author)
LaBr3 has been developed into large volume scintillator detectors within an ESA and TU Delft programme during this thesis work. The programme, which aimed at the space applications of LaBr3, also led to extensive experiments within a collaborative framework which included representatives for all the development aspects, i.e., from crystal...

A scintillator is a transparent material that emits a flash of light when it absorbs a ?-ray photon or an energetic particle. Scintillation crystals are widely used as spectroscopic detectors of ionizing radiation in nuclear science, space exploration, medical imaging, homeland security, etc. This thesis is about nonproportional response of...

Lanthanide based materials are used in everything from phosphors for light bulbs and LEDs, to scintillators for medical imaging purposes to magnets. They also show potential for spintronics and for increasing the efficiency of solar cells. Knowing the energy of the lanthanide 4f and 5d states is important for understanding the electronic...

Geological evidence of storm surges has the potential to provide vital information on storm-surge risk. Sediment from the coastal dunes of the Netherlands contains evidence of extreme floods that occurred before reliable measurements of water level began. For these sediments to be useful in flood-risk analysis, they need to be reliably dated....

Shah, K.S. (author)
The focus of this thesis is on new detection technologies that can be used in advancing nuclear medicine modalities, particularly positron emission tomography (PET). Several detection technologies are covered in this thesis. First, new Ce3+ doped rare earth trihalide scintillators that can be used in advancing PET imaging are discussed. Here,...

Krumpel, A.H. (author)
Many phosphors nowadays are lanthanide (Ln) activated semi-conductor and insulator materials due to their serviceable luminescent properties. Few years ago, an empirical model for semi-conductor and insulator materials with an Ln activator has been developed that not only explains the optical properties of phosphors but helps as well to find...

Birowosuto, M.D. (author)
In this dissertation, we present bromide and iodide scintillators which have been investigated for the past four years. Three major groups of compounds were studied; lanthanide trihalides LnX3, (pseudo)-elpasolites M2ALnX6 and ternary halides AmLnnXo where M and A are alkali cations, Ln is a rare earth cation and X is a halide anion. Some...
