Abstract

Glass samples were tested for use in high-dose dosimetry in radiation processing. The main dosimetric characteristics were determined: lower detection threshold, reproducibility, response to gamma radiation of 60Co and thermal decay at room temperature, with the use of a densitometer, spectrophotometer and thermoluminescence reader. The results show that this kind of material could be useful for dosimetry in several applications of ionising radiation, taking into account its thermal fading.
