A thermoluminescent dosimeter, or TLD, is a type of radiation dosimeter, consisting of a piece of a thermoluminescent crystalline material inside a radiolucent package. When a thermoluminescent crystal is exposed to ionizing radiation, it absorbs and traps some of the energy of the radiation in its crystal lattice. When heated, the crystal releases the trapped energy in the form of visible light, the . The bulb dosimeter system consists of dosimeters and a microprocessor-based portable TLD reader developed by the Atomic Energy Research Institute of Hungary. The latest system consists of a set of CaSDy TL bulb dosimeters with built-in memory chips, as well as a microprocessor based : S. Deme, I. Apáthy.   Thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLD) and optically stimulated luminescent dosimeters (OSLD) are practical, accurate, and precise tools . The aim of this work was to carry out the monitoring of the environmental scattered radiation inside the IR room using two types of thermoluminescent dosimeters, TLD (reference dosimeter.

Introduction. TLD cards are widely used as personal dosimeters for individual monitoring. However, it can be used for environmental monitoring due to its special characteristics in dosimetry [].The natural external radiation dose to the public varies in different parts of the world based largely on the geomagnetic field, altitude and solar cycle.   Although specific eye lens dosimeters have been developed (Bilski et al , Carinou et al , O'Connor et al , Clairand et al ), it still remains an acceptable practice to derive the eye lens dose from a dosimeter placed above the apron, at chest or neck level (Clerinx et al , Martin ). In those cases, appropriate correction. radiation workers is carried out using personnel dosimetry badges, which include thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLDs), optically stimulated luminescent dosimeters (OSLDs), radio-photoluminescent dosimeters (RPLDs) and film badges. As per the earlier information in the book of Botter-Jensen et al. Assignment 2 involves modelling a Lithium Fluoride thermoluminescent dosimeter (TLD). Ultimately, we are never interested in the dose to a dosimeter. Rather, we are interested in the dose to the medium at the spatial location occupied by the dosimeter. We frequently deal with dose to water in radiotherapy.

[6,7,8,9]. Thermoluminescent (TL) dosimeters are widely used for radiation detection in the fields of environmental, industrial and personnel applications, just to mention a few. The theory of TL dosimetry, and the abilities of different TL materials for use in several applications, have been summarised in a variety of books [10,11,12,13,14,15,16]. The. Miscellaneous TLD Calibration of Mg2SiO4(Tb)(MSO) thermoluminescent dosimeters for use in determining diagnostic x-ray doses was performed by Kato et al. The results shown in Figure 9 demonstrate that the detector sensitivities depend on their exposure in the low-dose region. The sensitivity at 20 mR was about 10% greater than that at mR.   Thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLDs) come in very small dimensions and their use, to a great extent, approximates a point measurement. Film dosimeters have excellent 2-D and gels 3-D resolution, where the point measurement is limited only by the resolution of the evaluation system.
