A 4-W, laser-based system for the positional readout of thermoluminescent (TL) plates was utilized to obtain dose profiles for a 60Co radiotherapy beam. Experimentally obtained glow curves for LiF resulting from the rapid heating rates characteristic of laser heating agreed well with results predicted using a first-order kinetic model. Excellent system(More)
The design and performance of a positionally sensitive system for the laser read-out of dosimetric information contained in LiF chips and a specially designed composite detector having a thin LiF layer is reported. A 2 cm X 3 cm X 0.254 mm LiF layer was successfully manufactured with a glass backing; however, this was subject to thermal cracking at high(More)
