Abstract : In the absence of light, the thermoluminescence (TL) signal of irradiated aluminum oxide TL dosemeters (TLD) faded by 21% in 3 months. When exposed to low intensity incandescent light. the TL signal decreased by 25% in 6 h. High intensity fluorescent light caused the TL signal to fade by more than 90% in 6 h.
