Abstract

We present the characteristics of the thermoluminescence (TL) response of single mode optical fibre (SMF) subjected to 30 and 70 kV x-ray irradiation. The TL responses are compared with commercially available TLD-100 (rod types). The SMF and TLD-100 were irradiated with x-ray source by using X-rays Generator model Phillips MG 165 located at Malaysian Nuclear Agency. The SMF and TLD-100 show linear dose response subjected to 30 and 70 kV x-ray irradiation. The SMF shows TL response by 10 times and 8 times greater than TLD-100 for the above-mentioned energies. The TL sensitivity characteristics of SMF show promising results to be introduced as a TL dosimeter material. The SMF could be used in several applications in the fields of medicine, industry, and research purposes.
