SELF-POWERED RADIAC INSTRUMENTATION,
ARMY NUCLEAR DEFENSE LAB EDGEWOOD ARSENAL MD
Pagination or Media Count:
Self-powered and low-powered solid-state electronic techniques were used to investigate the feasibility of satisfying military radiac instrumentation requirements. The development of a prototype integrated radiac instrument, based on a scintillator-photovoltaic cell concept, is proposed. The crucial parameters of the candidate components for the proposed instrument are discussed. This instrument would be capable of measuring gamma radiation from 10 Rh to 1000 Rh in a self-powered mode, and from 10 mRh to 10 Rh in a low external powered mode the instrument would also function as a dosimeter.
