[en] The objective of this study is to investigate the emission mechanism of radiophotoluminescence (RPL) in the Ag+-doped phosphate glass (glass dosimeter), which is now used as individual radiation dosimeter, because the emission mechanism of RPL in glass dosimeter was not fully understood. Optical properties such as optical absorption spectrum, RPL spectrum and change of RPL spectrum as a function of X-ray irradiation dose were measured for commercially available glass dosimeter. In this study, we discuss the emission mechanism of two RPL peaks at 460 nm and 560 nm, based on the fact that electrons and holes produced by X-ray irradiation are trapped at Ag+ ions to produce Ag0 and Ag2+ ions, respectively, when the Ag+-doped phosphate glass is exposed to X-ray. We would like to propose the emission mechanism of RPL peaks at 460 nm and 560 nm, concerning with Ag2+ and Ag0 ions.
