Abstract

The Ionising Radiations Metrology Forum (IRMF) organised a second comparison of surface contamination monitor calibrations in which twenty establishments in the UK participated. The exercise involved the circulation of three surface contamination monitors for calibration using large area reference sources available in the participants’ laboratories.
The instruments used were a Mini Instruments EP15, a Berthold LB122 and an Electra ratemeter with DP6AD probe. The instrument responses were calculated by the individual participants and submitted to the authors for analysis along with details of the reference sources used. Details of the estimated uncertainties were also reported.
The results are compared and demonstrate generally satisfactory agreement between the participating establishments.
