Abstract

The Ionising Radiations Metrology Forum (IRMF) organised an intercomparison of calibrations of neutron area survey instruments in which five establishments in the UK participated. The exercise involved the circulation of two neutron dose-rate monitors for calibration in the fields produced using 252Cf and 241Am-Be. The instruments used were a Harwell model 0949 and a Studsvik model 2202D.
All results were submitted to the author for analysis. Responses relative to neutron fluence, as stated by the individual participants, were calculated. The results are compared and demonstrate good agreement between establishments.
