I didn't know much about the film badges we wear and the regulations until I took over for a colleague that retired and had been doing our service for many many years. the people at your company have been very helpful and knowledgeable. Able to answer any questions I have and believe me it has been many. They are always polite and understanding. I would recommend this company to anyone in need of this type of service.

Frequently Asked Questions

Curious About RDC’s TLD Badge + Neutron Monitoring?

Find answers to common questions about our TLD + Neutron badge.
How does a TLD + Neutron badge work?

Our TLD + Neutron badge uses thermoluminescent materials to measure radiation exposure. When exposed to ionizing radiation, the material within the dosimeter traps electrons in an excited state. After you ship your TLD badge back to RDC, we’ll measure the radiation dose in our lab by heading your badge, which releases energy from trapped electrons in the form of light. We measure the light, and the intensity is proportional to the radiation dose.

Our TLD + Neutron badge is specifically designed to detect neutron radiation in addition to X-ray, beta, and gamma radiation, making it suitable for complex radiation environments.

A standard TLD badge measures X-ray, beta, and gamma radiation and typically uses materials like lithium fluoride or calcium fluoride without any special neutron-sensitive additives.

A TLD badge designed to measure neutron radiation incorporates neutron-sensitive materials, such as lithium fluoride (LiF) enriched with lithium-6 (Li-6) or other neutron-sensitive compounds. These materials can capture neutrons and produce a measurable signal.

Our TLD badge with neutron monitoring has a broad energy response range, making it suitable for detecting various types of radiation. It can measure X-ray energies from approximately 16 keV to 7 MeV, beta energies from 251 keV to 5 MeV, and neutron energies from thermal (low energy) neutrons up to 14 MeV.

Our thermoluminescent dosimeter with neutron detection is highly reliable, providing precise and consistent radiation dose measurements. Its tissue-equivalent design ensures accurate dose readings across different types of radiation, and its resistance to environmental influences such as moisture enhances its reliability in various conditions. Regular calibration and maintenance help maintain the badge’s accuracy.

After you return your TLD + Neutron badges to RDC, we process each badge in our lab by heating them in a specialized reader. This heating process releases the trapped electrons, emitting light proportional to the absorbed radiation dose. We measure the emitted light with photomultiplier tubes or other light-sensitive detectors, which convert the light intensity into an electrical signal.

Then, we record, analyze, and compile the resulting data into detailed reports. We’ll mail your reports and post them to your online account within 10 business days of receipt of the badges.

Our TLD + Neutron badge works best in environments where comprehensive radiation monitoring is required, particularly those with potential exposure to neutron radiation.

Nuclear power plants, research laboratories, and industrial settings commonly use TLD badges with neutron monitoring when neutron radiation is present. They are also ideal for medical facilities and healthcare environments that involve radiation therapy and diagnostic imaging with neutron exposure.
