Thermoluminescence

Thermoluminescence dosimetry (TLD), radiation protection dosimetry

Thermoluminescence (TL)

Thermoluminescence of beta irradiated (~ 1 Gy) MTS-N (LiF:Mg,Ti) measured with a lexsyg cube (TL reader)

Thermoluminescence (TL) is a backbone in radiation protection dosimetry with a long tradition and used for a wide range of dosimetric purposes, including accident dosimetry, retrospective dosimetry, environmental dosimetry, personal dosimetry, clinical dosimetry, ...
