The paper reports on the optimization of a heater used in a Thermoluminescence glow curve apparatus. Two variants of the heater, planchet system and block system, are described. Both variants performed by a cheap material as graphite and designed following cryogenic principles, are very simple constructively, ensure minimum heat losses and require lower power.
