In the present paper we show the result of study on the thermoluminescent signal of LiF:Mg,Cu,P (TLD-100H) after irradiation with beams of different LET (photons, electrons and protons). Through the analysis of the glow curve it is possible to obtain information on the LET of the radiation beam. To perform this analysis we have deconvoluted the glow curves adopting general order kinetic equation for the description of the peak shape. In addition a numerical simulation has been performed to find a connection among the physical parameters of the model (OTOR) and the parameters of the empirical expression used in the analysis of the experimental data (GOK). The methodology indicate that the kinetic order b of the glow peak depends on the LET.
