Calibration of an irradiation facility
MetadataShow full item record
The objective of this research is to provide accurate reliable data for use in an irradiation facility and present findings in a manner useful to operators. The intended use of the irradiator and irradiator protocols dictate a need for a well-known administered dose. Dose rates from two independent methods were investigated at multiple distances away from the source. First, the irradiation platforms were examined for "hot spots" using Gafchromic © film to provide a qualitative estimate of the dose distribution. A quantitative assessment of doses was then performed using Fricke dosimetry (a primary ...
