Induced effects in ionization chamber cables by photon and electron irradiation.

Abstract

Photon and electron irradiation effects in cables and connectors of ionization chambers were investigated under different experimental conditions by means of measurements of the chamber response to a 90Sr standard check source and by measurements of radiation-induced leakage current. Correction factors for irradiation effects on cables and connectors were obtained as a function of the radiation energy, cable length, and absorbed dose dependences.
