Construction and evaluation of a real-time personal dosemeter based on a Si sensor for eye-dose measurement

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The objective was to design a thin, flex card based personal dosemeter with low angular and energy dependence. It is based on silicon diodes that can measure the personal dose equivalent. Anisotropic conducting adhesive was used to connect the Si sensor to the flex card. Its intended use is for interventional radiology and after nuclear or radiological accidents, as it provides immediate detailed information about the dose rate to the wearer during shorter periods and integrates the dose rate during hours. It can be freely placed all over the body. By placing the dosemeter close to the eyes, it may be possible to estimate the personal dose equivalent as well as the dose at the lens of the eye.
