- The theory of thermoluminescence is reviewed. The spectral distribution of thermoluminescence and the activation energies associated with peaks of the glow curves were determined for samples of aromatic amino acids, trypsin, and spores of Bacillus megaterium irradiated by a Co/sup 60/ gamma source. All of the substances, except phenylalanine, exhibited a readily observable long-lived glow that persisted up to at least 2 hr following irradiation. Possible reaction mechanisms in the production of thermoluminescence in biological materials are discussed. (C.H.)
