Thermoluminescence dosimetry | definition of thermoluminescence dosimetry by Medical dictionary
the calculation of a radiation dose by measuring the light output after heating a special absorbent material (for example, lithium fluoride) placed in the radiation beam; the light output is proportional to the amount of radiation exposure.
