Abstract : The oxalic acid dosimeter was tested for accuracy according to a procedure proposed by The American Society for Testing Materials, in three gamma dose ranges: 1.6-6, 6-18 and 18-50 megarads. The results were found to agree within a plus or minus 5-10 % experimental error with values extrapolated from measurements by the Fricke dosimeter. (Author)
