A boron-doped alumina (Al2O3:B) dosimeter was developed for thermal neutron dosimetry. The Al2O3:B was synthesized by a sol-gel method, and annealed up to 1200°C. The ratio of B to Al in the Al2O3:B was 0.1. For X-ray diffraction (XRD) analysis, the diffraction pattern of the Al2O3:B at 500°C had broad reflex peaks corresponding to the crystalline structure of γ-Al2O3. The XRD pattern at 1200°C had reflex peaks corresponding to the crystalline structures of α-Al2O3 and Al18B4O33. The optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) property of the Al2O3:B had satisfactory linearity in X-ray dose measurement. Several type dosimeters, Al2O3, Al2O3:B, and Al2O3:B with Cd foils, were set in a thermal neutron field. It was confirmed from their responses that the response of Al2O3:B was originated from 10B(n,α) 7Li reactions.
July 31, 2017 Due to the end of the Yahoo!JAPAN OpenID service, My J-STAGE will end the support of the following sign-in services with OpenID on August 26, 2017: -Sign-in with Yahoo!JAPAN ID -Sign-in with livedoor ID * After that, please sign-in with My J-STAGE ID.
July 03, 2017 There had been a service stop from Jul 2‚ 2017‚ 8:06 to Jul 2‚ 2017‚ 19:12(JST) (Jul 1‚ 2017‚ 23:06 to Jul 2‚ 2017‚ 10:12(UTC)) . The service has been back to normal.We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.
