  5. 5. Optically Stimulated Luminescence for Retrospective Radiation Dosimetry. The Use of Materials Close to Man in Emergency Situations

    University dissertation from Lund University: Faculty of Medicine

    Author : Therése Geber-Bergstrand; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; Lund University.; Lunds universitet.; [2017]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Retrospective dosimetry; Emergency dosimetry; OSL;

    Abstract : If an accident or attack involving radiological or nuclear material were to happen, people from the general public would be at risk of exposure to ionising radiation. Unlike people working with ionising radiation, for whom level of exposure to radiation is constantly monitored with dosemeters, people from the general population do not wear dosemeters; thus, the dose estimations for these individuals must be performed using alternative methods.
