Determination of a CR-39 detector response to neutrons from an Am-Be source
MetadataShow full item record
A comparison of experimental and calculated responses of a CR-39 detector to neutron spectra from an Am-Be source is presented. Code named Neutron_CR-39.F90 has been used to calculate the neutron dose equivalent as well as the track density. Conversion coefficient (sensitivity), between track density in track/cm(2) and neutron dose equivalent in mSv, was calculated and good agreement with experimental data was found. Sensitivity increases linearly with removed layer in the range between 6 mu m and 24 mu m. (C) 2014 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
