How TLD Technology Works

The Next Generation TLD Dosimeter contains sensitive elements that absorb radiation and store some of the energy in the form of excited electrons. The dosimeter is read by stimulating the sensitive elements using a heat source, which releases all of the stored energy as light. The amount of released light is measured and used to determine the radiation exposure received by the dosimeter's user during the wearing period.
