The current paper illustrates glow curve analysis of newly developed Borate glass dosimeters. A series of dosimetric properties including dose response for photons and electrons, energy response, optical fading, and precision were determined. Glow curve deconvolution based on the general order kinetics equation was applied to extract the trapping parameters. Excellent fitting was obtained with the superposition of three-second order glow peaks. The quality of fitting was monitored through the r2 value which is always in excess of 0.9998. Thermoluminescence (TL) measurements showed that the material exhibits good linear dose–response over the delivered range of absorbed dose from 0.5 to 4 Gy for photons and electrons irradiation with low energy dependence. The material exhibits large signal loss when exposed to direct sunlight and moderate signal loss when exposed to fluorescent light. Therefore, it is recommended to use the current dosimeters indoor and to avoid prolonged direct exposure to fluorescent light. This combination of properties makes the material suitable for radiation dosimetry.
