In the synchrotron radiation source ring tunnel, various types of radiation such as bremsstrahlung photons, photo-neutrons, electrons and positrons are present due to the interaction of high energy electrons with structural material as well as gas molecules in a vacuum chamber and also due to cascade production. In this study, an attempt was made to quantify the bremsstrahlung photon dose inside the ring tunnel using direct reading dosimeters and thermoluminescent dosimeters.
