Paper Abstract

Results of preliminary investigations of thermoluminescent response of CaSO4Dy to ionizing radiation are reported. Very high sensitivity and good linearity of this luminofor are confirmed in the case of gamma irradiation. Neutron sensitivity of calcium sulphate due to internal conversion of 32S to 32P by fast neutrons was investigated as well, but it does not seem to be sensitive enough to be used in personal dosimetry.
