Abstract: Thermoluminescence (TL) response of ten Indian brands of iodized salt has been recorded for possible use in TL dosimetry. It has been observed that a heat treatment of one minute at 500°C reduces the complexity of the glow curve pattern. Further, in many cases heat treated samples exhibit intense peaks at higher temperature which are stable at room temperature (25°C) whereas some brands like Sungold, Tata, Ankur and Dandi inhibit such peaks. TL response of two such cases namely the integration zone 200-400°C of the glow curve of Taja and Shudh brands of iodized salt follow polynomial of degree three to beta exposure in the dose range 1 to ~ 25 Gy; indicating its potentiality in TL dosimetry.
