Two detector media suitable for a warm liquid, ionization chamber filled with tetramethylsilane(TMS) and tetrarnethylgermanium(TMG) were exposed to y radiation from a 60Co source up to dose 579Gray and 902Gray, respectively. The electron lifetimes and the free ion yields were measured as a function of accumulated radiation dose. A similar behavior of the electron lifetimes and the free ion yields with increasing radiation dose was observed between the TMS and TMG ionization chambers.
