In this study, Lithium Fluoride nanopowder with Mangnesium and Titanium impurities has been synthesized by Co-precipitation method. The synthesized powder was then pressed into 3.2*3.2*0.9 mm3 pills and sintered at 750⁰c for 10 minutes. The peak 5 in LiF: Mg, Ti is regarded as the main peak and includes sub-peaks 5a and 5b, which occur at the temperatures lower and higher than that of peak 5, respectively. Peak 5a in LiF;Mg,Ti occurs due to the localized recombination of trapping/luminescence center (TC/LC) , in which the electron is released from the electron trap by obtaining energy from heat and recombines through the tunneling phenomenon with a hole located in the adjacent luminescence center. Concerning the standard TLD chips, which are composed of micron-sized particles, the peak 5a either does not occur or appears with very low intensity, which is insignificant in terms of dosimetry. Thus, the present study focuses on synthesizing thermoluminescence nanoparticles by co-precipitation method in several stages by citing models based on the maintenance of linear behavior of thermoluminescence nanopowder up to high doses and its relationship with localized electron-hole recombination. In addition, by making changes in the concentration of ingredients, the temperature of the reaction medium and the presence or absence of surfactant were evaluated to achieve particles in nano dimensions with suitable geometric shapes. The resulting nanopowder was irradiated with different doses of alpha and gamma and consequently, the increasing rate of the intensity of peak 5a compared to peak 5, as the main factor in nanodosimetry was observed after analyzing the glow curves. Based on the results, the LiF: Mg, Ti thermoluminescence nanopowder could increase the 5a/5 ratio and can be used as a convenient, inexpensive, and practical tool to estimate the amount of energy deposited by the beams in nanoscale.
