High-energy quasi-monoenergetic neutron fields: existing facilities and future needs

S. Pomp, D.T. Bartlett, S. Mayer, G. Reitz, S. Röttger, M. Silari, F.D. Smit, H. Vincke & H. Yasuda
Abstract: High-energy neutrons are the dominant component of the prompt radiation field present outside the shielding of high-energy accelerators, and are a significant component of the cosmic radiation fields in aircraft and in spacecraft. In radiotherapy using high-energy medical accelerators, high-energy neutrons are a secondary component of the fields in the beam delivery system and in the patient’s body. The range of neutron energies in these fields extends from thermal energies to several GeV, and...

EURADOS Intercomparison 2012 for Neutron Dosemeters

Elena Fantuzzi, Marie-Anne Chevallier, Rodolfo Cruz-Suarez, Marlies Luszik-Bhadra, Sabine Mayer, David J. Thomas, Rick Tanner & Filip Vanhavere
Abstract: EURADOS, within the work performed by Working Group 2 -Harmonization of Individual Monitoring in Europe, has started a self-sustained programme of regular intercomparisons and has successfully executed three intercomparisons for whole body photon dosemeters (IC2008, IC2010, IC2012) and one intercomparison for extremity dosemeters for photon and beta fields (IC2009). In 2012, the EURADOS intercomparison IC2012n was launched for personal neutron dosemeters routinely used to measure personal dose equivalent, Hp(10), in individual monitoring. No systems...

EURADOS Intercomparison IC2017n for Neutron Dosemeters

Sabine Mayer, Marie-Anne Chevallier, Elena Fantuzzi, Michael Hajek, Marlies Luszik-Bhadra, Rick Tanner, David J. Thomas & Filip Vanhavere
Abstract: EURADOS has carried out a number of different intercomparison exercises for personal dosemeters in the past that qualify as proficiency tests for different dosimetry systems and radiation types including one previous neutron personal dosemeter intercomparison (IC2012n). Neutron intercomparisons are especially complicated to design because of the limited availability of reference fields and the costs associated with the exposures. IC2017n was the second EURADOS organized intercomparison exercise for neutron personal dosemeters. It was an important...

EURADOS Stakeholder Workshop on June 30th, 2016

Rühm Werner, Željka Knežević, Elena Fantuzzi, Roger Harrison, Helmut Schuhmacher, Filip Vanhavere, Joao Alves, Jean-Francois Bottolier-Depois, Paola Fattibene, Phil Gilvin, María Antonia Lopez, Sabine Mayer, Saveta Miljanić, Pawel Olko, Hannes Stadtmann, Rick Tanner, Arturo Vargas & Clemens Woda
Introduction: On June 30th, 2016, the “First EURADOS Stakeholder Workshop” was held at the Helmholtz Center Munich (HMGU) in Neuherberg, Germany. The workshop was jointly organized by the HMGU and the EURADOS Office in conjunction with the 57thEURADOS Council meeting, which took place on June 29thand July 1st, also at the HMGU. In the frame of the “European Joint Programme for the Integration of Radiation Protection Research”, the CONCERT project funded by the European Commission...

Visions for Radiation Dosimetry over the Next Two Decades – Strategic Research Agenda of the European Radiation Dosimetry Group

Werner Rühm, Elena Fantuzzi, Roger Harrison, Helmut Schuhmacher, Filip Vanhavere, Joao Alves, Jean-Francois Bottolier-Depois, Paola Fattibene, Željka Knežević, María Antonia Lopez, Sabine Mayer, Saveta Miljanić, Stefan Neumaier, Pawel Olko, Hannes Stadtmann, Rick Tanner & Clemens Woda
Abstract: The European Radiation Dosimetry Group (EURADOS) comprises a self-sustainable network of more than 60 European institutions such as reference and research laboratories, dosimetry services and companies, as well as more than 300 scientists active in the field of radiation dosimetry. The aim of the network is to promote research and development and European cooperation in the field of dosimetry of ionizing radiation and its implementation in routine practice, in order to contribute to compatibility...
