LANDAUER’s OSL dosimeters are the most advanced technology available for measuring radiation exposure. OSL dosimeters are accurate within +- 1 mrem, while TLD and film badges require at least 10 mrem to begin reporting. Unlike TLD or film, OSL dosimeters provide accurate dose readings, even when exposed to extreme temperatures, moisture, oil from fingers, or when tampered with or dropped.

OSL dosimeters can be analyzed multiple times, enabling deep investigation into unusual exposures (including determining whether a badge was worn at the time of exposure). OSL dosimeters are also capable of storing data for a much longer period of time, which provides you with the flexibility to simplify your dosimetry program by maintaining longer wear frequencies.
