Now, a research team from Tomsk Polytechnic University (TPU) has obtained various types of luminescent and transparent ceramics (ie nanoceramics or luminophors) on a spark-plasma sintering unit (SPS) for powder materials.
The fading of these thermoluminophors is low due to the relatively deep electron traps of [CaF.sub.2]: Mn, and the luminophors are not sensitive to daylight [15, 16].
The shape of the glow curves, the temperature, and the intensity of the thermoluminescence peak depend mainly on the concentration of manganese in luminophors and the heating conditions.
