Publications, 10 August 2021

We offer to your attention a preprint “Determination of Correction Factors for Correction of the Individual Albedo Neutron Dosimeter DVGN-01 Readings in the Field of the DC-280 Accelerator” P16-2021-25 published by the JINR Publishing Department. The authors are Mokrov Yu. V., Morozova S. V., Schegolev V. Yu.

The paper presents the results of determining the correction coefficients for individual albedo neutron dosimeters DVGN-01 of the AKIDK-301 complex for correcting their readings when used by personnel in the field of the DC-280 accelerator. The correction coefficients have been determined using a spherical albedo system under irradiation at four points: in the accelerator hall near the radiation monitor and in front of the shield door from the accelerator hall (room 110) and in the beam output cabin (room 115). The obtained values of the coefficients are in good agreement with the coefficients obtained earlier on the MC-400 and used in the individual dosimetric control of the personnel of the FLNR.

The investigation has been performed at the Department of Radiation Safety of JINR
