Abstract:

The program for determining feasibility of the trichloroethylene TCE system involved 1 preparation of dosimeters 2 development of a spectrophotometric reading system to determine pH values from optical absorbance values with precision not obtainable from visual observation of color change 3 determination of pre- and post-irradiation stability and 4 gamma irradiations of dosimeters at both low- and high-dose rate and low and high temperature to determine dosimeter response and reproducibility of response. The chief conclusion is that the aqueous TCE dosimetry system may ultimately satisfy military requirements. At present such operations as culling of dosimeters from preparation batches, aging of dosimeters before and after irradiation, and calibration of dosimeters for response would be necessary to produce a satisfactory set of field dosimeters.
