Abstract The thermal neutron monitoring system used with ordinary thermoluminescence dosimeters has been studied. In this monitoring system, we used the capture gamma-rays from the reaction between cadmium and thermal neutrons. The effects of the back-scatter and building-up of radiation have been studied for approaching the n/γ ratio of the system to that of the mixed field. It has been found that the ratio of a system using these effects is greater than that of one without these effects, and… CONTINUE READING
