THE JOINT EUROPEAN TORUS PERSONNEL DOSIMETRY SERVICE
The Joint European Torus (JET) Personnel Dosimetry Service (PDS) provides dosimeters for approximately 250 radiation workers. This is a relatively small number of people, but the unique nature of JET and its low radiation working limits have made the provision of an autonomous service necessary. The efficiency of such a small service is greatly enhanced by computerisation of the dose measurement and record keeping. The Service uses thermoluminescent dosemeters (TLDs) for routine dose measurement and, in addition, small Geiger Muller based dosemeters in the higher radiation environments. The computer used is a NORD100 which is part of the JET computer network. The software is written in FORTRAN and uses a hashed database. An important feature of the software is that it presents a consistent interface between the user and the program and database interactions.
