The neutron monitor comprises of an Optically Stimulated Luminescence (OSL) dosimeter and a heavy ion sensitive Polyallyl Diglycol Carbonate (PADC) plastic to measure potential occupational doses from fast neutrons, beta rays and gamma rays.
skin dose - Hp(0.07)
whole body dose - Hp(10)
|whole body dose - Hp(10)|
|Minimum Detectable Dose (MDD)||50 µSv||100 µSv|
|Minimum Reportable Dose (MRD)*||100 µSv||200 µSv|
|Uncertainty at the MRD**||30%||50%|
* MRD is based on the Limit of Quantification as defined by “Determination and Interpretation of Characteristic Limits for Radioactivity Measurements” (IAEA/AQ/48)
** Uncertainty at the MRD is based on the 95% confidence limit
Monitoring cycle period
This is the length of time for wearing the monitor
4 or 12 weeks
This is where you position the monitor
|Chest or waist level with your name label facing away from your body|
|Monitor (inc delivery)||$37.40|
