Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A personal dosimeter prototype, for static magnetic fields with three Hall probes, has been designed and built to provide a reliable instrument for long-term analysis. The probe output signals, proportional to the magnetic flux density components of the vector B, are filtered, sampled, and stored in a buffer memory sufficient to cover a whole worker shift. The data sampling rate is high enough to record the operator movements within the fringes of the magnetic field. The content of the buffer memory is then transferred on a personal computer and registered on individual dosimetric cards. The data can be used for personal exposure monitoring.
