In the present paper we investigate the features of IRGANOX_ 1076 phenols as a material for electron spin resonance (ESR) dosimetry.

The dependence of ESR signal as function of c dose is found to be linear in the dose range studied (12–60 Gy) and the lowest measurable dose is found to be of the order of 1 Gy. The signal after irradiation is very stable in the first thirty days. From the point of view of the tissue equivalence, these materials have mass energy absorption coefficient values comparable with those of soft tissue.

Abstract

In the present paper we investigate the features of IRGANOX_ 1076 phenols as a material for electron spin resonance (ESR) dosimetry. We experimentally analyzed the ESR response of pellets of IRGANOX 1076 phenols irradiated with 60Co photons. The best experimental parameters (modulation amplitude and microwave power) for dosimetric applications have been obtained. The dependence of ESR signal as function of c dose is found to be linear in the dose range studied (12–60 Gy) and the lowest measurable dose is found to be of the order of 1 Gy. The signal after irradiation is very stable in the first thirty days. From the point of view of the tissue equivalence, these materials have mass energy absorption coefficient values comparable with those of soft tissue.
