Possibility of acrylamide (AA)-2-acrylamido-2-methyl propane sulfonic acid (AMPS) copolymer for dosimetric applications has been investigated using Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy technique. The copolymer has exhibited various FTIR absorption bands, characteristic of copolymer. On irradiation, a change in intensity of some of the absorption bands is observed. Based on intensity- radiation dose variation, the copolymer could be used for dosimetric applications.
