A tissue equivalent proportional counter filled with a mixture of tissue equivalent gas and 3He for neutron monitoring.

Abstract

Tissue equivalent proportional counters (TEPC) allow the measurement of the ambient dose equivalent H(*)(10) in mixed fields. IRSN has been studying the design and the response of a TEPC in terms of neutron H(*)(10). First, a cylindrical counter was filled with propane gas at a low pressure. H(*)(10) measured in monoenergetic neutron fields underestimated… (More)
