Abstract

The aim of this work was to provide information which could be used to improve the efficiency and cost effectiveness with which regular calibrations and checks of personal dosemeters are carried out. To this end simple factors have been determined relating the results of calibrations performed free-in-air to those for calibrations performed with the dosemeters mounted on the phantoms recommended by either the International Commission on Radiation Units and Measurements (ICRU) or the International Organization for Standardization (ISO). These factors were derived for the two most commonly used calibration sources, i.e. 241 Am-Be and 252Cf, and for dosemeters from all the neutron dosimetry services presently approved in the UK.
