Abstract : A digital dosimeter system employing a scintillation detector and an analog to digital converter (ADC) was designed and constructed for the measurement of gamma-ray differential dose. The differential dose for gamma rays with energies up to 700 keV, and dose rates as low as 0.2 mr/hr, have been measured to better than plus or minus 11 percent with this instrument. The limitation on the accuracy of the electronics is of the order of plus or minus 1 percent. (Author)
