The effective dose equivalent, HE (or the effective dose, E) to an individual is the primary limiting quantity in radiation protection. However, techniques for measuring HE for neutrons have not been fully developed. In this regard a new tissue equivalent proportional counter (TEPC) based on a gas electron multiplier (GEM) for measuring H*(10), which is a conservative estimate of HE, for Author: Marat Seydaliev. Neutron Search Detector KSAR1U Hand-held neutron search device KSAR1U is designed for high neutron detection sensitivity. With its light weight housing, compact size and its long uptime it is the best choice for all field and monitoring applications. Its purpose is to detect and locate neutron emitting radioactive material.

Neutron dosimetry and the neutron rem counter by T. P. J. Baker-Self Download PDF EPUB FB2

A neutron detector is described which measures the neutron dose rate in rem/h independently of the energy of the neutrons from thermal to 15 Mev. The detector consists of a BF/sub 3/ proportional counter surrounded by a shield made of polyethylene and boron plastic that gives the appropriate amount of moderation and absorption to the impinging neutrons to obtain rem response.

A new Rem-counter for neutrons was designed. The counter has two detector systems, one of which is a BF3 counter embedded along the center axis in a cm-diameter and cm-height paraffin cylinder, and the other, three BF3 counters embedded coaxially at intervals of degrees around this axis.

CR is a better neutron dosimeter than a nuclear emulsion plate (NTA) and thermoluminescence detector, but it is less efficient than a bubble detector (Guo et al., ) as a neutron dosimeter. Recently, a REM counter was designed by Agosteo et al.

The results show that the sensitivity of the rem counter follows the "ICRP rem curve" within about - 20 % at neutron energies between keV and 5 MeV. A design study of application of the CsI self-activation method to the “neutron rem-counter technique” was investigated.

A CsI crystal served as both the main target material and 4π counter of neutron activation method in our proposed CsI self-activation method. A commercially available CsI gamma-ray dosimeter was selected as the neutron detector and surrounded with several neutron filters made of Author: Taishi Ueki, Akihiro Nohtomi, Genichiro Wakabayashi, Junichi Fukunaga, Toyoyuki Kato, Saiji Ohga.

A novel tissue-equivalent proportional counter (TEPC) based on a gas electron multiplier (GEM) for measuring H*(10) for neutrons was designed and constructed. The pulse height spectra (PHS) of two different neutron sources (a Cf source and a AmBe source) were measured using the new TEPC.

The measurements were made with the TEPC filled with two different gases (10P gas and a propane. Neutron Thermoluminescent Dosimeter – Neutron TLD The personnel neutron dosimetry continues to be one of the problems in the field of radiation protection, as no single method provides the combination of energy response, sensitivity, orientation dependence characteristics and accuracy necessary to meet the needs of a personnel dosimeter.
