Abstract

In this study, use of LiF-TLD100 as a detector material with B4C filter in neutron personnel dosimetry is investigated both experimentally and by Monte Carlo simulation. In the first part of the study, cylindrical thermoluminescence LiF-TLD100 crystals are irradiated by an Am-Be neutron source. Then, the absorbed radiation dose in the crystals is determined in TLD reader. Similar measurements are made by locating the B4C filters, which are made sintering boron carbide that includes natural rate of B-10, in front of LiF-TLD100 crystals. The absorbed radiation doses after filtering are again determined in TLD reader.
