Abstract

Optical imaging of polymer gel dosimeters in form of layers was investigated to enquire their reliability for in-phantom dose measurements in photon or thermal neutron fields. The obtained dose measurements were compared with those achieved by means of Fricke gel dosimeters. Reliability of Fricke gel dosimeters was confirmed, whereas it has been shown that a conspicuous improvement of the adopted polymer gel dosimeters is necessary.
