Abstract
The suitability of glass-encapsulated CaF2:Mn thermoluminescent dosimeters for environmental radiation surveillance was investigated. More than two hundred dosimeters were subjected to extensive laboratory and field tests. Various parameters such as accuracy, precision, sensitivity, self dosing, and fading were investigated. Selected dosimeters of this type can be used for accurate determination of environmental radiation levels if certain precautions are taken. Such precautions are proper calibration and determination of self-dosing characteristics for individual dosimeters.
