    Abstract

    A method for calibration of thin-film dosimeters irradiated with 80-120keV electrons has been developed. The method is based on measurement of dose with a totally absorbing graphite calorimeter, and conversion of dose in the graphite calorimeter to dose in the film dosimeter by Monte Carlo calculations. A thermal model was developed to estimate the temperature contributions from the air above the calorimeter that is heated by the electron beam.

    As an example, Riso B3 thin-film dosimeters were calibrated by 80-120 keV electron irradiation and compared with a calibration carried out at 10 MeV electron irradiation. The two calibrations were found to be equal within the estimated uncertainties of +/-10% at 1 s.d. (C) 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
