Dosimetry Unit

The main activities of the dosimetry unit are on personal and accident dosimeter, identification of irradiated food stuffs and dating of geological, archaeological and anthropological samples with Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR), Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) and Thermoluminescence (TL) techniques. Dosimetry unit has Co-60 and Cs-137 experimental gamma irradiation sources having the dose rates 0.79 kGy/h and 0.54 kGy/h (In July 2010), respectively. The dose rates of the gamma sources are traced by NPL (National Physical Laboratory) with fricke and alanine dosimeters certificated by NPL every year.
