Abstract
A NOVEL CONCEPT IS PROPOSED FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PERSONNEL DOSIMETER FOR IONIZING RADIATION, SUCH AS, GAMMA RAY. THE DOSIMETER USES A SPECIALTY CLASS OF RADIATION SENSITIVE CONDUCTIVE POLYMERIC COMPOSITIONS. WHEN EXPOSED TO LOW DOSAGE OF IONIZING RADIATION, THE POLYMERIC COMPOSITIONS WOULD UNDERGO A SUBSTANTIAL CHANGE IN ELECTRICAL CONDUCTIVITY. AS A SLIGHT CHANGE IN CONDUCTIVITY CAN BE DETERMINED ACCURATELY, THE DOSIMETER IS EXPECTED TO BE HIGHLY SENSITIVE, AND SMALL IN SIZE. THE DOSIMETER CAN BE AUTOMATED, MINIATURIZED AND CAN BE DESIGNED TO PROVIDE AN EARLY WARNING FOR THE OVER EXPOSURE.
