A correlation between thermoluminescence and isothermal decay of colouration in NaCl:KCl microcrystalline powder is reported. No isothermal bleaching of colouration is observed for all the compositions. However, a rapid isothermal decay is seen in K95N5Cl and K90Na10Cl, when the first of the two glow peaks is thermally bleached. It is suggested that the interaction between colour centers and dislocations is inhibited upon mixing.
