Abstract

The energy dependence of response of the NRPB PADC neutron personal dosemeter has been measured using accelerator generated neutrons over the energy range from 100 keV to 15 MeV. This is the most comprehensive recent determination of the response, which is here compared to that measured previously. The response to workplace spectra is then analysed to ascertain the accuracy with which the dosemeter responds in the working environment.
