Characterization of Low-Energy (6-30 keV) Response of Polish TLDs (MTS-N, MCP-N) with Synchrotron Radiation and Determination of Some TLD Quantities


Relative to 137Cs gamma rays, the response of MTS-N (NatLiF:Mg,Ti-0.04 cm thick) increased from 0.4 to 1.4 between x-ray energies of 6 and 30 keV and that of MCP-N (NatLif:Mg, Cu, P-0.04 cm thick) increased from 0.02 to 1.2 between 6 and 26 keV. A mathematical model for TLD response was used with measured responses to determine overall TLD efficiency C(k) and efficiency relative to 137Cs. The effective energy attenuation coefficient mu(k) and light attenuation coefficient f were also determined experimentally. The relative efficiency of MTS-N increased from 0.66 to 1.30 between 6 and 30 keV and that of MCP-N increased from 0.37 to 0.99 between 6 and 26 keV.
