Abstract : The objective of this effort was to measure the response, relative to 60Co radiation, of lithium fluoride (LiF) lithium borate (Li2B4O7), and manganese activated calcium fluoride (CaF2:Mn) thermoluminescent dosimeters, and silver activated metaphosphate (AgPO3) glass dosimeters to monoenergetic photons in the 2.25 to 9 MeV energy region.
