Investigation of application of chromosome aberrations of lymphocytes in peripheral blood for biological dosimetry purposes in remote (up to 40 years) period after acute exposure to doses of 1 Gy and more was carried out. The comparative analysis of frequency of unstable and stable (using FISH and G-banding methods) aberrations was performed for 24 subjects(More)
EPR dose reconstruction after accidental photon exposure based on materials irradiated in the vicinity of the victim (sucrose, medicine tablets, etc.) was used successfully in several cases referenced in the literature. However, accidental exposure may also occur with a neutron component such as in the Tokai-Mura criticality accident. The aim of this work(More)
Above 3000 tooth enamel samples, collected at population of radioactive contaminated territories after Chernobyl accident, the Chernobyl liquidators, the retired military of high radiation risk and the population of control radiation free territories were investigated by EPR spectroscopy method in order to obtain accumulated individual exposure doses.(More)
This paper presents a technique for evaluation of future radio traffic of circuit switched services in Erlang for near-term outlook using Holt-Winter's exponential smoothing. The proposed traffic prediction technique relies on analysis of traffic data on cells. We propose how to classify traffic data for prediction. The result from a trial in history data(More)
Individual irradiation doses were determined by electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy of the tooth enamel of the inhabitants of Zaborie, the most contaminated inhabited settlement not evacuated after the Chernobyl accident. Dose determination was performed using a specially developed automatic spectrum processing procedure. Spectrum processing was(More)
An international intercomparison of criticality accident dosimetry systems took place in the SILENE reactor, in June 2002. Participants from 60 laboratories irradiated their dosemeters (physical and biological) using two different configurations of the reactor. In preparation for this intercomparison, the leakage radiation fields were characterised by(More)
A computer routine was developed for automatic deconvolution of electron paramagnetic resonance spectra of tooth enamel samples for individual radiation dose reconstruction in the low dose region. The deconvolution routine uses the non-linear least square fit of a model simulating a tooth enamel spectrum by superposition of derivative Gaussian functions to(More)
The experimental energy dependence of the electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) radiation-induced signal at irradiation by photons in the energy range of 13 keV-1.25 MeV was analysed in terms of the absorbed dose in human tooth enamel. The latter was calculated using a Monte Carlo simulation of the photon and electron transport. The dependence of the(More)
Some of the most important sources of systematic errors in dose determination using tooth enamel EPR spectroscopy and ways of reducing those errors are discussed. Enamel from the outside of the front teeth should not be used for dose determination because of induction of paramagnetic centers by solar light. The accuracy of the method in the low dose range(More)
Suitability of Electron Paramagnetic Resonance (EPR) spectroscopy for criticality dosimetry was evaluated for tooth enamel, mannose and alanine pellets during the 'international intercomparison of criticality dosimetry techniques' at the SILENE reactor held in Valduc in June 2002, France. These three materials were irradiated in neutron and gamma-ray fields(More)
