We offer to your attention a preprint “Experimental research of the response of the albedo individual neutron dosimeter DVGN-01 in the field of the accelerator DC-280 to correct its readings” P16-2023-24 issued by the JINR Publishing Department. The authors are Yuri Mokrov et al.

The paper presents the results of an experimental research of the response of albedo individual neutron dosimeters DVGN-01 of the AKIDK-301 and AKIDK-302 complexes in order to correct their readings.

Correction of the DVGN-01 readings was carried out using correction coefficients, which were determined by the results of measurements using a spherical albedo system when it was irradiated at eight points on the DC-280 accelerator: in the accelerator hall near the radiation monitor and in front of the protective door from the accelerator hall, in the beam output cabins (rooms 113 and 115) and in a permanent staff room on the second floor near the accelerator. The obtained values of the coefficients are in good agreement with the coefficients obtained earlier on the FLNR accelerators and currently used in individual dosimetric control of the laboratory staff.

The study has been performed at the JINR Department of Radiation Safety.
