How is ionizing radiation measured?

Cody Miles | July 4, 2018

Ionizing radiation can be monitored using film, thermoluminescent dosimeters, or electronic devices.

Radiation Detection Company measures radiation exposure using thermoluminescent dosimeters. These dosimeters contain four separate phosphors. The badges are read with control values that are subtracted from the personnel badges. An algorithm then selects the correct energy the badge was exposed to in order to apply the appropriate dose.
