Abstract
The use of LiF thermoluminescent dosimetry (TLD) material as a dosimeter for microwave radiation was evaluated. Teflon discs impregnated with LiF were subjected to saturation exposures (approximately 100,000 R) of gamma radiation, and these irradiated dosimeters were exposed to microwave radiation at 2450 MHz. Analysis of the relative light output data for the treatment groups indicated that there were no significant differences between groups. Hence, it was concluded that LiF, as used in the study, will not serve as a useful dosimeter for microwave radiation in the 2450-MHz frequency band. (Author)
