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.

Directly Measures

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
