CaSO4:Dy and LiF TLDs do not exhibit photon energy dependence beyond +/-55% for photons in the energy range from 1 MeV to about 7 MeV. However, when sandwiched between metal filters or used in TLD badge holders having metal filters, the response changes for irradiation from high energy photons as compared to that from 60Co gamma rays (generally used for(More)
In view of the introduction of International Commission on Radiation Units and Measurements operational quantities Hp(10) and Hp(0.07), defined for individual monitoring, it became necessary to develop an algorithm that gives direct response of the dosemeter in terms of the operational quantities. Hence, for this purpose and also to improve the accuracy in(More)
The thermoluminescence (TL) glow peak height ratio of the main dosimetric peak (at about 240 degrees C) and the lower temperature satellite peak (at about 140 degrees C) of CaSO4:Dy was found to vary between 1.4 and 11.5 in more than 100 batches of CaSO4:Dy TLD tested in the last 5 years. Efforts were made to minimise the batch-to-batch variation. In most(More)
One of the major concerns for designing VLSI circuits has been the amount of power dissipated by these circuits. Hence, adiabatic techniques such as ECRL and PFAL for low power circuit design came into being. This paper proposes design of basic gates using these two techniques. Tanner ECAD tool is used and the circuits are implemented using the 1.25 micron(More)
In view of the recommendations of International Commission on Radiological Protection for reduction of the occupational annual dose limit for eye lens from 150 mSv to 20 mSv/y, questions have been raised on the adequacy of monitoring for the quantities Hp(10) and Hp(0.07). As an immediate requirement, in the present situation, where there is no exclusive(More)
CaSO(4):Dy, CaSO(4):(Dy, Bi) and CaSO(4):Bi phosphors were prepared through re-crystallization method. Thermoluminescence (TL) characteristics of these phosphor samples were investigated. The radiation induced radical ions formed in these phosphors were investigated using electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy. The main signals observed in both(More)
106Ru/106Rh is unique amongst other commonly used beta sources such as 147Pm, 85Kr, 204Tl, 32P, natU and 90Sr/90Y in the sense that it is capable of simultaneously delivering shallow/skin, eye lens and deep/whole body doses (WBDs) and they differ from each other substantially. In view of this, the investigation of various quantities defined for individual(More)
Properties such as high optically stimulated luminescent (OSL) sensitivity, ease of preparation and dose linearity over nine decades (µGy-kGy) make LiMgPO4:Tb, B (LMP) a unique phosphor for dosimetry applications. This led to the investigation of the beta response of highly sensitive LMP-based Teflon-embedded OSL discs for personnel monitoring applications.(More)
The study is aimed at optimising the glow curve structure of CaSO4:Dy phosphor for dosimetric purpose and also to understand the observed changes owing to thermal treatment in the thermoluminescence (TL) sensitivity and glow curve structure. The reversible changes in the intensities of the lower temperature satellite peak and the main dosimetric glow peak(More)
A comprehensive measurement of radioactivity concentrations of the primordial radionuclides 238U, 232Th and 40K and their decay products in the soil samples collected from the sites of Indian research stations, Bharati and Maitri, at Antarctica was carried out using gamma spectrometric method. The activity concentrations in the soil samples of Bharati site(More)
