ISO/ASTM 51956:2005 covers procedures for the use of thermoluminescence dosimeters (TLDs) to determine the absorbed dose in materials irradiated by photons or electrons in terms of absorbed dose to water. It covers systems that permit absorbed dose measurements under the following conditions: the absorbed-dose range is from 1 Gy to 100 kGy; the absorbed-dose rate is between 1 x 10-2 and 1 x 1010 Gy s-1; the radiation energy range for photons and electrons is from 0,1 to 50 MeV. Absorbed dose and absorbed-dose rate measurements in materials subjected to neutron irradiation are not covered.
