Abstract

In this paper, the various models dealing with the effects of ionisation density on the thermoluminescence (TL) response (efficiency) of TL LiF dosemeters are discussed. These include (i) the Unified Interaction Model (UNIM), which models photon/electron linear/supralinear dose response; (ii) the Extended Track Interaction Model (ETIM), which models heavy charged particle (HCP) TL fluence response; (iii) Modified Track Structure Theory (MTST), which models relative HCP TL efficiencies; and (iv) Microdosimetric Target Theory (MTT), which models both relative HCP efficiencies and photon energy response.
