Details

This document describes the design, development and evaluation of the HPA personal thermoluminescence dosemeter (TLD), intended to accurately measure Hp(10) and Hp(0.07) in mixed photon/electron fields with energies in the range from ~10 keV to a few MeV.

The Monte Carlo simulation package MCNP4c2 was used primarily, with some measurements additionally made.
