Radiation-induced Defects in LiAlO2 Crystals: Holes Trapped by Lithium Vacancies and Their Role in Thermoluminescence
Electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) is used to identify the primary hole trap in undoped lithium aluminate (LiAlO2) crystals. Our interest in this material arises because it is a candidate for radiation detection applications involving either optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) or thermoluminescence (TL).
