Implementation of dose-equivalent meters based on microdosimetric techniques in radiation protection
The results of two intercomparisons are discussed, and information on experience obtained under practical radiation protection conditions with respect to response, sensitivity and performance of TEPC dose equivalent meters is reported. In addition, the basic practical requirements for the performance of such instruments for area and individual monitoring are reviewed. Twenty-eight papers are presented on: - development of new instruments for experimental microdosimetry; - basic physical aspects of proportional counter measurements; - intercomparisons of TEPC instruments; - TEPC measurements in photon radiation fields; - practical use of TEPC dose equivalent meters at working places; - numerical methods and improvement of TEPC response to neutrons; - space radiation dosimetry; - specification of radiation quality; - requirements for the performance of dose equivalent meters in area and individual monitoring.
