Development of an extrapolation chamber for the calibration of beta-ray applicators

An extrapolation chamber was designed and constructed, and its performance was studied in beta radiation fields. The characteristics of this chamber and the measurement procedures used for the

Characteristics of an extrapolation chamber for β-ray protection level measurements

An absolute determination of the absorbed dose rates to tissue from a 90Sr+90Y β-ray secondary standard source was attempted using an extrapolation chamber developed at the Calibration Laboratory of Sao Paulo, with an absorbed dose rate agreement within 1.0%.
