Abstract : A radiochromic optical waveguide dosimeter is protected from the adverse temperature effects of exposure in the desired operational temperature range of -40 C to +60 C by flattening the round plastic tubing to be used for the fabrication of the dosimeter until the tubing attains an elliptical cross section and then fabricating the dosimeter from the tubing having the elliptical cross section.
