Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL):
Optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) dosimetry is a well established method of reporting individual doses.
Our new OSL dosimeter defines a milestone in monitoring the Personal Dose Equivalents Hp(10) and Hp(0.07). Using state-of-the-art methods, our new OSL dosimeter covers the full energy range from 16 keV to more than 10 MeV. For this energy range it is outstanding in its energy dependancy in official personal dosimetry, see Dosimetric Performance for details.
Two beryllium oxide (BeO) chips are molded in a bar-coded plastic slide, which is mounted in a badge. The badge is ultrasonically welded to guarantee a lightproof dosimeter. Due to the almost tissue equivalency BeO is perfect for dosimetric applications. The dosimeter is compact and very competitively priced.
Ceramic BeO is not hazardous to health. There is no Inhalation risk of beryllium particles. BeO is exceptionally immune to environmental influences.
Being type approved by the Physikalisch Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) our OSL dosimeter is appropriate to applications in official dosimetry.
Due to its enourmous nominal range of use our OSL dosimeter is perfect for almost all applications of whole body dosimetry. This dosimeter is versatile and sustainable.
