## Abstract

The thermoluminescent (TL) response to neutrons has been calculated as a function of neutron energy from 1 keV to 14 MeV for ^{6}LiF and ^{7}LiF. The neutron response is calculated in units of ^{60}Co equivalent rad/n/cm^{2}. These calculations are significantly more accurate than the usual kerma calculations in that we calculate the differential kerma as a function of angle using two body kinematics and angular distribution data whenever available and then fold the charged particle energies at each angle with the different TL - Linear Energy Transfer (LET) experimental dependencies measured by Tochilin and by Patrick-Jahnert thus obtaining two theoretical response curves. These theoretical response curves are then compared with the experimental data of Tanaka and Furuta.
