The thermoluminescence response of LiF:Mg,Ti (TLD- 100) to 20 keV electrons from a scanning electron microscope has been measured. Radiochromic dye films previously calibrated were used to determine the fluence incident on TLD-100 chips. The procedure for irradiation and glow curve deconvolution was adhered to the protocols previously determined in our laboratory for gamma rays and heavy charged particles. The response at electron fluences higher than 4 × 1010 CM-2 is supralinear, due to the increasingly relevant contribution of the high temperature peaks. The relative contribution of the high temperature peaks to the TL signal is abnormally small, about half that observed in γ irradiation and four times smaller than what has been measured in low-energy X ray exposure.
