Thermoluminescent dosimeter badge

Case contributed by Dr Ayush Goel
  • nickel coated aluminum card with thermoluminescent dosimeter discs (1):
    • disc: calcium sulphate doped with dysprosium (CaSO4:Dy), in Teflon matrix
  • disassembled thermoluminescent dosimeter (2)
  • labeled image (3):
    • radiation falls on the side of the yellow arrow
    • orange arrows denote a cut in the thermoluminescent dosimeter card and a nob for the same on the internal side

The aluminum faces the radiation and copper faces the thermoluminescent dosimeter disc.
