A quick and efficient computer program was developed in order to resolve the peaks from the thermoluminescence (TL) glow curve. The program was designed to be easily used on any MS Windows-based computer with a graphical user interface. In this program, a new method based on the general one-trap TL equation was adopted to analyse the TL glow curve with the traditional first-order, second-order and general-order kinetics model. The method described here, general approximation, generates TL glow peaks and interpolates the relevant TL parameters from the glow data. The program was tested with simulated and experimental TL glow data and the results were found to be adequate and reliable.
