We demonstrate a practical calibration method and its applicability for a commercially available radiophotoluminescence dosemeter (RPLD), i.e. the GD-352M (AGC Techno Glass, Shizuoka, Japan) to eye lens dose monitoring, by performing the calibration according to the ISO recommendations. The calibration was then verified through a series of experiments. For verification of the derived calibration factor (1.21 ± 0.04, k = 1) of the RPLD, we performed standard irradiations in the ISO narrow series X-ray reference fields and the simulation measurements in the actual radiation fields in a hospital. The TLD-based commercially available dosemeters, DOSIRIS™ was also put on the ISO cylinder phantom and the RANDO phantom together with the GD-352M in the verification experiments. The personal dose equivalents Hp(3) obtained from the GD-352M and those obtained from the DOSIRIS™ were in good agreement with each other. Our results demonstrate the proper calibration of a commercially available RPLD that is applicable to the additional monitoring of the lens of the eyes for medical staff.
