Abstract:

Gamma ray induce changes in the conductivity of CdS crystals are studied as a possible mechanism for monitoring gamma dose rates. Data are presented on the change in conductivity due to gamma exposure over a range of 140,000 ergsg hr ttoo 55 xx 1100 ttoo tthhee 77tthh ppoowweerr eerrggssgg hhrr C.. TT hh ee
