Abstract

The photon dose rates from a range of radionuclide neutron sources have been measured using halogen-quenched Geiger-Müller detectors and EPD MkII and EPD-N2 electronic personal dosemeters. The photon spectrum from each source was calculated from available literature, corrected for self-attenuation within the sources, and used to calculate the Geiger-Müller detector response for each source. EPD and EPD-N2 photon dose measurements on phantom agreed well with the Geiger-Müller detector measurements.
