Document Title: Thermoluminescent Dosimeter
Category: Nuclear Research and Facilities
Media Type: Photos
Date of Image/Photo: 1985
Background: Pacific Northwest National Laboratory improved on this technology in the 1990s when we developed and patented optically stimulated luminescence, a method that uses lasers or light sources to read radiation exposures, providing faster, simpler, and more accurate readings than previous methods.
