Abstract : Miniature glass-encapsulated needle-shaped thermoluminescent (TL) dosimeters, 1.4 mm in outer diameter and 12 mm in length, have been investigated for routine application in finger rings to monitor the dose received by the hands, e.g., in certain Linac repair operations. Both CaF2:Mn and LiF-filled dosimeters were studied, and special attention was given to the simplification or elimination of the cumbersome annealing procedures normally used with LiF dosimeters.
