- Acquisition of Thermo Scientific Harshaw Model 3500 Manual TLD Reader, a tabletop instrument for thermoluminescent dosimetry (TLD) measurements of gamma and neutrons mixed fields.
- The system is supplementary to other three kind of dosimeter at Calliope facility: Fricke solution (absolute dosimeter), Red Perspex and alanine-ESR.
- The Harshaw 3500 TLD reads one dosimeter per loading and accommodates a variety of TL configurations (chips, disks, rods, and powder). In order to reset a large number of dosimeters in the same time, a KONN TLD-Furnace LAB01/400 has been added to the system.
- The system consists of two major components: the TLD Reader and a personal computer with the Windows Radiation Evaluation and Management System (WinREMS™) software for data acquisition and processing.
