Abstract : The following dosimetric properties were observed in sintered BeO disks and powder: high thermal sensitivity and wide dynamic range, little energy dependence at low x-ray energies, low fast and thermal neutron thermoluminescence response and good stability at room temperature. Thermoluminescence is principally in the ultraviolet and can be optically stimulated by visible light. The response is linear from 10 mR to 50 R and can be measured up to 100,000 R. (Author)
