    Abstract

    The radio-photoluminescent glass dosimeter is applicable for measurement of gamma radiation dose using silver-doped phosphate glass. Therefore, investigations were carried out to establish the optimal composition range of phosphate glasses for radiophotoluminescence glass dosimeter. The basic physical and optical properties of the glasses, such as hardness, transmission and absorbance values have been measured and radiophotoluminescence analyses have been carried out. From the light absorption characteristics of the glasses it was established that they possess a very well expressed transmittance in the UV and visible optical regions. A correlation between the properties investigated and glass compositions were discussed.
