Abstract

This study aimed to investigate effects of the thermoluminescent dosimeter (TLD) size and type on the absorbed dose value by using of Monte Carlo calculations. The options in creating conditions to establish the kerma approximation were also studied. The Monte Carlo N-Particle (MCNPX 2.4.0) transport code was used to design simulations. Results of this work indicate that if common mineral materials of TLDs are replaced by air and a huge volume is applied for the TLD, the accurate assessment of absorbed doses is possible while the photon energy fluence in the TLD cell is convoluted with mass energy absorption coefficients of the real TLD material. In this method the simulation run-time is strongly decreased.
