Sažetak
Phototransfered thermoluminescence (PTTL) found its use in radiation dosimetry for dose reassessment primarily in photon radiation fields. After the dose has first been evaluated by a “normal” thermoluminescence (TL) measurement, the same detector is subjected to the PTTL dose reassessment procedure providing a new estimation by an independent measurement procedure. PTTL also gives a new possibility for a dose reassessment and for separate dose determination in the mixed fields. It was shown in our previous papers that it is possible to determine separately gamma and neutron dose components with a single detector due to different sensitivities of TL and subsequent PTTL to neutrons in comparison to gamma rays. The main disadvantage, the low sensitivity of both, TL and PTTL, to neutrons restricts the use only for the case of radiation accident. In this work we have investigated the possibilities of improvement the sensitivities of PTTL by heating the samples during UV irradiation and by using the sensitization technique involving a “pre-dose” followed by annealing. Two types of LiF:Mg, Ti detectors, TLD-100 and TLD-700, were examined by irradiation in 137Cs gamma ray field and with neutrons of 14.5 MeV. After UV irradiation at different temperatures, PTTL increases reaching the values 2.1 and 2.5 times higher at 90C than that at 25C for TLD-100 and TLD-700 respectively. Increasing level is approximately the same for gamma rays and neutrons. After sensitization, TL signal is one half of that before sensitization. PTTL signal has increased 11 times for gamma rays and 5 times for neutrons at 25C with significant increase with increasing temperature during UV irradiation.
