Abstract

This contribution presents a critical review about some materials used in dosimetry and the interest that has emerged on topaz recently. In addition, results about the feasibility for synthesizing topaz by the HYSY-CVD route using Na2SiF6 and Al2O3 are shown. Synthesis tests in nitrogen atmosphere were conducted varying temperature (700 and 750°C) and time (60 and 90 min) while maintaining constant the amounts of Al2O3 and Na2SiF6. The microstructural characterization by XRD, SEM and EDS revealed the succesful formation of topaz and aluminium fluoride.
