Is a dosimeter a radiation badge that contains a sensitized film?
A dosimeter based on sensitized film is one kind of radiation dosimeter, but there are other different kinds, and film badges are becoming less common. One widely known dosimeter is the direct read "pen style" electroscope dosimeter. Another "pen style" dosimeter is a miniature ionization chamber, but like the film badge dosimeter requires special equipment to read it later in a lab. Probably the most commonly used type of dosimeter outside of emergency response is the TLD, or thermoluminescent dosimeter.

Why is a noise dosimeter calibrated at 114dB?
There is no technical reason to calibrate a dosimeter at any one particular sound level, and dosimeters may be calibrated at a number of different levels. The important thing is that the calibration includes sound levels relevant to the noise that will be measured. One particular model of calibrator happens to produce a sound of 114 dB. Others use 93 dB and other levels

What instrument is used to detect radioactivity?
A device generically called a Radiac, however there are dozens of different kinds of Radiacs which operate by different principles and measure different things. Some are: geiger-mueller counter rate meter ionization chamber meter scintillation counter electrometer dosimeter ionization chamber dosimeter photographic film dosimeter

How does a radiation dosimeter works?
There are different kinds. The thermoluminescent dosimeter has a crystal that stores energy when exposed to radiation and then emits light when heated. An OSL (optically stimulated luminescence) dosimeter works in a similar manner, except that a laser is used to stimulate the light emission instead of heat. To measure neutron radiation, a commonly used dosimeter uses solid state nuclear track detectors (SSNTDs). For example, a small square of CR-39 (the same plastic used in many lenses for glasses) develops latent damage tracks as the neutrons collide with protons in the plastic. These latent tracks are later developed using a caustic solution, e.g., sodium hydroxide solution and the developed tracks are counted using a microscope. Hopefully someone else can add how other types of dosimeters work by improving this answer for you.
