Abstract

The use of ionisation chambers to measure dose rate at industrial irradiation plants has been studied as part of a wider project on real time dosimetry. The characteristics required of such a chamber are discussed. These include the ability to withstand operation at high cumulative doses (up to 5MGy) and dose rates of up to about 150 kGy h -1 . Other desirable features are water equivalence and immunity to environmental conditions such as temperature, pressure and humidity. A number of chambers have been assessed experimentally and a suitable chamber selected. The dosimetric characteristics of the chosen chamber have been assessed by comparison with absorbed dose measurements made using chemical dosimeters.
