Abstract

Suitable dosimeter methods have to be developed to measure the different dose contributions in phantoms exposed to epithermal/thermal neutron beams of a research reactor. The method based on Fricke xylenol orange gel dosimeter in form of layers has shown to be very effective for achieving images of the various dose components in air or in phantoms exposed to epithermal/thermal neutron beams with very high fluence rate. Another useful method is based on the use of TLD-700 chips, from whose response the gamma dose and the thermal neutron fluence can be obtained by means of appropriate parameters of the glow curve.
