A simple UV and gamma radiation optical dosimeter is presented. The organic dye degradation with radiation absorption is used to measure the radiation dose. The design, the electronic circuit, the calibration and the operation procedure are also described in detail. Finally, the results of actual applications are shown with β-carotene in an acetone/ethanol solution utilised as an optical probe.
