Abstract In the present work policrystals of alpha - Al2O3 doped with terbium were synthesized using the solvent evaporation method. the samples were prepared using Al(NO3)(3)center dot 9H(2)O and Tb(NO3)(3).5H(2)O reagents, with Tb concentrations between 1 and 5 mol% and thermally treated at high temperature above similar to 1400 degrees C. X-ray diffraction measurements showed the a-phase formation of samples. TL glow curve presented an intense peak at similar to 190 degrees C and two other with low intensity at 290 and 350 degrees C after gamma irradiation. the best doping concentration which presented high luminescence was the sample doped with 3 mol% of Tb. U spectra and fluorescence measurements showed similar luminescence spectra with lines attribute to Tb3+ ions. A linear behavior to gamma dose between 1 and 20 Gy was observed in TL, using 190 degrees C peak as well as in OSL signal, this last carried out using 532 nm wavelength stimulation.
