Abstract

The thermoluminescence (TL) characteristics of KCl:Eu2+ subjected to α, β, γ, x ray, and ultraviolet (UV) radiation (200-300 nm), as well as the dose response was investigated. The TL glow curve structure is very similar for any type of irradiation used with differences only in the peak intensities; it has good reproducibility. Also, the dose response is linear for all types of irradiations. These results allowed us to conclude that the KCl:Eu2+ crystals may be used as a dosimeter for ionizing and nonionizing radiation
