Emission spectrum excited by ionizing radiation is called radioluminescence, and some groups use the area of the radioluminescence to evaluate the scintillation light yield.

Radioluminescence at the molecular transitions in gas mixtures is also of interest with respect to nuclear sources of incoherent radiation and radiation photochemical synthesis.
observed the spectra of infrared-stimulated luminescence (IRSL), radioluminescence (RL), and TL of thenardite but they did not identify the origin of the luminescence center related to the IRSL, RL, and TL spectra of thenardite [8].
Moreover, the amount of [Mn.sup.2+] at the position of [Li.sup.+] increased after all annealing steps, thus giving a dominating orange band in radioluminescence [28].
