Abstract

The measurement of personnel doses due to neutrons has been a persistent problem for many years. It is likely that dosemeters based on the etching of recoil proton tracks in a sensitive track detector will provide the best solution to this problem for the forseeable future. Already there have been several operational trials of dosemeters based on this principle, and various problems, in particular arising from the method of production of detectors and the effects of time and environment on the neutron sensitivity and background, have been identified. The purpose of this workshop is to clarify and seek best solutions to all these problems, in the expectation that this will aid routine services based on this type of detector.
