I am posting to these two news groups hoping that someone out
there wil have an answer or direction regarding my question.
I am somewhat familiar with the use of thermoluminescent detectors
(TLDs) to passively detect ionizing radiation with specially designed
crystals. However, I believe I read (quite a while ago) that teeth, in
their structure, can also store a "record" of ionizing radiation dose in
a manner analogous to TLDs. I have been unsuccesful in locating
the source of this information.
Does anyone have any knowledge of this? Specifically, of the use
of teeth to develop a retrospective record of ionizing radiation
