Abstract:

The AFRRI cobalt irradiator contains two sets of sources, allowing for either unilateral or simultaneous bilateral irradiation of large animals or objects. With a loading of 25 kCi of 60Co, exposure rates up to 400 Rminute are possible. The exposure rate can be varied either by changing the number of source rods or by changing the source to target distance. A brief description of the facility and the results of its calibration are presented. Author
