Abstract : The methods of kinetic optical spectroscopy have been employed to observe the very short-lived transients produced by pulse radiolysis of some of the tetra-alkyl compounds of Si, Sn and Pb doped with naphthalene and toluene. The feasibility of utilizing such bimolecular compounds for time resolved dosimeters in the low-energy x-ray region has been demonstrated. This represents an additional method for refinement of the the pulsed radiation profiles such as might be encountered in nuclear weapons uses. (Author)
