Diamond thin films have been irradiated with high doses (up to 12.8 kGy) of 90Sr beta particles. The diamond thin films have been synthesized from commercial Tequila as a precursor using Pulsed Liquid Injection by the Chemical Vapor Deposition (PLICVD) technique reported recently. Thermoluminescence (TL) phenomena at these doses exhibit peak curve shift to higher temperatures (from 370 to 440 K) in the glow curve and the integrated TL curve show a linear behavior. Therefore, it has been considered that diamond thin films could be used as high doses dosimeters.
