Abstract:

The objectives of this project were to evaluate the response of newly developed gamma-neutron dosimeters and the field operational adequacy of a new beta-gamma ion-chamber rate meter. It was concluded that the neutron-dosimeter system tested was subject to some effect, probably a neutron dose rate dependency, which caused the loss of accuracy. The recommendation is made for more laboratory study of this effect and the dosimeter system. Author
