I am looking for input on neutron detectors used by yourself and the
calibration methods for those neutron detectors.
This may provide us with an idea of the consistency of our neutron measurement
I have 5 questions but please do provide more input where needed. The
tabulation after the questions is nowhere near complete so please add to that.
Which are the most typical types (models) of neutron detectors being used by
your organization ?
Which are the most typical types (models) of neutron DOSIMETERS being used by
What is a typical uncertainty in the calibration of neutron detectors and
neutron dosimeters ?
Which regulations drive the requirements to calibrate neutron detectors ?
Which national/international calibration laboratory accreditation organization
is followed ?
Gas filled such as
HPI Rem 500
Liquid such as
Solid such as
Thermoluminescent albedo dosimeters
Instrument Calibration Methods
DD and DT generators
Exposure in a well-characterized operating nuclear reactor
Typical isotopes used for neutron detection
helium-3, lithium-6, boron-10, and uranium-235
