    Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearch


    Polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) films containing methylene blue and methyl orange are useful as gamma and electron radiation dosimeters. Absorbed doses should not exceed 40 kGy for methylene blue and 500 kGy for methyl orange. Because PVA is water-soluble, the films may be made without toxic solvents. The effects of irradiation temperature and humidity on the radiation response of the dosimeter films are discussed.
