Analyses on TL glow curves recorded with various heating rates for some ternary and quaternary crystals were accomplished using peak maximum temperatures (Tmax) which are experimentally obtained and corrected according to temperature lag effect proposed by Kitis and Tuyn. Curve fitting, initial rise, peak shape and variable heating rate methods were applied to experimental and corrected TL peaks. In spite of the fact that heating rate does not affect activation energy of a TL peak, analyses performed on the experimentally obtained TL curves resulted in an increment of the activation energy with increasing heating rate. However, as the corrected TL data were used for the analyses, the activation energy values of each TL peak recorded with different heating rate were in good agreement with each other. The detailed analyses on studied samples were given in the present paper. © 2018 Elsevier B.V.
