The linearity characteristic in radiation dosimetry presents a growing interest. Glasses have been applied to high radiation doses. In this work, materials will be analyzed and compared in relation to their linearity ranges. Lithium diborate, sodium diborate and commercial glass were irradiated with doses from 10 Gy to 10 kGy using a Co-60 Gamma-Cell system 220 and evaluated with the UV-vis technique. The sensitivity analyses were applied through four methodologies, searching for linear regions in their response. The results show that all four applied analyses indicate linear regions for the tested radiation detectors. The materials with higher linearity range, in descending order, were lithium diborate, sodium diborate and commercial soda-lime glass. The radiation detectors present potential use for radiation dosimetry in intermediate and high doses. (AU)
