Abstract:

Dosimeters developed from glass can be used for the dosimetry of beta-gamma radiation, of slow neutrons and of high energy charged particles ranging from 0.02 - 1 to 2. 10 to the 6th power rad. These dosimeters can accumulate and store information for a prolonged period of time at 150 C up to a month. The thermoluminescence of crystal phosphors had been repeatedly proposed to be used for dosimetry. Phenomena of radiophotoluminescence and color variation of the glass under exposure to irradiation were utilized. A description is made of the thermoluminescant dosimeters made of alumnophosphate glasses. The study was also concerned with the polycomponent glasses containing two or more elements of I and II groups as well as of silicon dioxide. Author
