The InLight System measures radiation exposure with aluminum oxide detectors (Al 2O3:C) read out by optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) technology. (Al 2O3:C) read out by optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) technology. The reader stimulates the detector with a light emitting diode (LED) array causing it to luminesce in proportion to the amount of radiation exposure and the intensity of stimulation light. The luminescence is detected and measured by the reader’s photo multiplier tube using a high sensitivity photon counting system. A dose calculation algorithm is then applied to the measurement to determine exposure results. This nondestructive type of read-out allows for dose verification through reanalysis.
Designed for portability, the small lightweight reader can be used anywhere to measure immediate and accu-rate radiation dose assessments. For emergency response use, area monitoring, single point radiation assess-ment, or any radiation assessment application.
