Paper Abstract

In this paper the applications of holographic interferometry to ionizing radiation dosimetry are presented. The determination of the accurate value of dose delivered by an ionizing radiation source (released energy per mass unit) is a complex problem which imposes different solutions depending on the experimental parameters and it is solved with a double exposure holographic interferometric method associated with an optoelectronic interface and Z-80 microprocessor. The method can determine the integral absorbed dose as well as the tridimensional distribution of dose in a given volume. The paper presents some results obtained in radiation dosimetry. Different transparent liquids were used as ionizing radiation transducers. Integral dose and spatial dose-distribution were recorded for equivalent tissue liquids and blood plasma. Boundary phenomena, during a irradiation of successive layers of liquids having different atomic numbers, were investigated.
