Abstract

A technique using temperature pulses was used to measure thermoluminescence in single aluminum oxide microparticles. This method can excite a large fraction of trapped carriers to luminesce simultaneously, which increases the maximum intensity and makes it ideal for probing the luminescence of micro- and nano-particles. Using 50ms and 10ms pulses, the technique resulted in curves similar to standard thermoluminescence curves with peaks near 240°C and 300°C respectfully. Increasing the temperature of a single pulse resulted in an increase in intensity.
