Abstract:The neutron response was characterised for Al2O3:C material coated with 6Li2CO3. Al2O3:C material, an optically stimulated luminescent (OSL) dosemeter, which is sensitive to both photons and beta radiation but is mostly insensitive to neutron radiation. The Al2O3:C material was coated with 6Li2CO3 to create a material sensitive to neutrons, beta and photon radiation. In this paper, the neutron response of this new OSL material (OSLN) will be compared with various other neutron measurement technologies in laboratory and field environments.
