In many sorts of zeolites long-living positron components are manifested, connected presumably with Ps-formation in various kinds of free space in the zeolite structure. Literature values demonstrate, however, a broad scatter of data obtained for assumedly on the same composition of zeolite indicating the possible influence of technology, adsorbates, impurities, water content, etc. In the present work spectral changes of the 511 KeV annihilation peak and its vicinity are evaluated, applying for the first time a combination of the S and W parameters and the 3γ-specific left plateau region measured in zeolites. To ensure reproducible experimental conditions, evaluated samples were measured. The data show individual temperature behaviours of the annihilation parameters in the studied temperature range of 90-450 K for each kind of samples. The temperature dependence becomes reproducible after the first heating run. The results are discussed with respect to the evolution of long-living positron and positronium components.
