Abstract: In this work TLD-200 (CaF2:Dy) chips were used to measure the gamma-ray doses in a PMMA phantom exposed to the BNCT beam at Tsing Hua Open-pool Reactor (THOR). The self-irradiation component induced by the decay of Dy-165 was corrected. The neutron dose contamination was less than 0.3%. The Dy content in the TLD-200 chip was determined by using the modified absolute calibration method of NAA. The self-irradiation TL signal was also applied for the in situ calibration.
