Response characteristics of domestic dosimeter glass to recording fission tracks and the homogeneity of track distribution are studied and compared with NBS-SRM 612 dosimeter glass using muscovite external detector method. Random samples of 12 dosimeter glasses made in China are tested. In this study the scanning area and total counted tracks are 0.336 cm(2) and 71726 tracks, respectively. This study shows that the response and the homogeneity of domestic glass are very good, and that using our dosimeter glass for fission track dating the relative error is below 5%.
