Abstract:

The results of neutron and gamma radiation dosimetry measurements are presented in this report. Sufficient data are provided so that estimates of the neutron fluence, neutron spectrum, gamma dose, and gamma dose rate can be obtained for both burst operations and power runs. A discussion of the dosimetry techniques presently in use at the Nuclear Effects Directorate is presented, as are plans for improving and expanding upon these techniques. A summary of those factors which affect burst yield or maximum power level is also provided.
