About this book

​This book covers applications of R to the general discipline of radiation dosimetry and to the specific areas of luminescence dosimetry, luminescence dating, and radiation protection dosimetry. It features more than 90 detailed worked examples of R code fully integrated into the text, with extensive annotations. The book shows how researchers can use available R packages to analyze their experimental data, and how to extract the various parameters describing mathematically the luminescence signals.
In each chapter, the theory behind the subject is summarized, and references are given from the literature, so that researchers can look up the details of the theory and the relevant experiments. Several chapters are dedicated to Monte Carlo methods, which are used to simulate the luminescence processes during the irradiation, heating, and optical stimulation of solids, for a wide variety of materials. This book will be useful to those who use the tools of luminescence dosimetry, including physicists, geologists, archaeologists, and for all researchers who use radiation in their research.

About the authors

Vasilis Pagonis is professor emeritus of Physics at McDaniel College, USA. He is an internationally recognized expert in luminescence dosimetry, and he has published more than 130 papers in peer-reviewed journals. He is the coauthor of four books: Classical Mechanics: A Computational Approach, With Examples in Python and Mathematica (Kulp and Pagonis, CRC Press 2020), Recent Advances in Physics and Applications of TL and OSL (eds. Chen and Pagonis, World Scientific 2019), Thermally and Optically Stimulated Luminescence: A Simulations Approach (Chen and Pagonis, Wiley 2012), and Practical and Numerical Exercises in Thermoluminescence (Pagonis, Kitis, and Furetta, Springer 2006).
