The spectral fluence response of practicable neutron dosemeters for routine use generally does not match the energy dependence of radiation protection quantities such as the ambient dose equivalent H*(lO). As a consequence, significant errors may be encountered when monitoring in a neutron energy spectrum different from that in which the dosemeter has been calibrated. A collaborative CEC-supported project has been undertaken to develop new neutron calibration fields with energy spectrasimilar to those found in the working environment.
As a first step, a database of neutron spectra and instrument and dosimetric response functions has been prepared. A program package has been developed to assist the, collection and manipulation of these data. The features of the programs are described, and examples for dosimetric applications are given. This report constitutes an instruction manual for the package.
