LiF based thermoluminescent materials are the most used passive detectors in the field of radiation protection. For personal and area dosimetry in mixed neutron and photon fields, /sup 6/LiF and /sup 7/LiF TLD pairs are employed for the simultaneous determination of neutron and photon doses. Therefore, an accurate knowledge of their sensitivity to photons… CONTINUE READING
