Özet

While unirradiated potassium tartrate (PT) samples do not exhibit any electron spin resonance signal, irradiated ones contain many resonance signals. A power function of the radiation dose was found to describe well the dose-response curve of the central resonance signal, and adjusting the microwave power and modulation amplitude to be 2 mW and 1 mT, respectively, was found to increase the sensitivity of PT. The radiation sensitivity of PT and the accuracy of the measured radiation dose were found to be G = 0.42 and 6 %, respectively.
