Point Lapreau TLD-based personal dosimeter

Artifact Number:



A compact, 5 cm long, personal dosimeter of the type used at the Pt. Lapreau Nuclear Generating Station in New Brunswick.  The units are built around the Panasonic Series 800 thermoluminescent (TLD) dosimeter. The particular type used here is a Model UD806SA and uses lithium borate dosimeters.   Four, ~3mm diameter dosimeters, are encased in a simple unit that slips inside an outer jacket into which are incorporated appropriate filters.  This outer unit, in turn, fits into a clear plastic holder which offers additional filtering properties to allow discrimination of the radiation energy.  A clip on the reverse allows easy attachment to clothing.
