The supralinearity behaviour of TLD-300 phosphors was investigated under irradiation of Co-60 γ-photons and absorbed doses up to 35 Gy. The measured supralinearity factors fv(v=3 or 5, is the peak number for the two main peaks of TLD-300) show strong supralinearity effects for peak 5 for doses greater than 2 Gy, while the total glow curve response exhibits a supralinearity above about 3 Gy. As far as peak 3 response is concerned, no evidence for supralinearity was observed up to 15 Gy, whereas its response seems to decrease by about 15% for doses greater than 25 Gy.
