It was aimed to develop a novel polymer gel dosimeter to overcome weakness of earlier ones. A cellulose derivative, hydroxypropyl cellulose (HPC), was chosen as a polymer composing gel matrices and processed with a radiation-crosslinking technique in advance to manufacture of a gel dosimeter. Two methacrylate-type monomers, 2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate (HEMA) and poly(ethylene glycol) dimethacrylate (9G), were selected as vinyl-type monomers polymerizing with irradiations. Visual change with irradiation of $$^{60}$$Co $$gamma$$-rays was observed, and haze and UV-vis absorption analyses were conducted to quantify visual changes of irradiated dosimeters. Radiation-induced white turbidity was easily observable directly by our eyes even with $$^{60}$$Co $$gamma$$-irradiation of 1 or 2 Gy. Sensitivity, which was evaluated by haze, toward $$gamma$$-ray dose was dependent on the composition of the vinyl-type monomers. UV-vis spectroscopy indicated that there are at least two different mechanisms leading to white turbidity. It was shown that dose rate effect can be less significant by optimizing composition of the vinyl-type monomers.
