Calorimetry at industrial electron accelerators

Arne Miller, A. Kovacs

    Research output: Contribution to journalConference articleResearchpeer-review


    Calorimetry is a convenient way to measure doses at industrial electron accelerators, where high absorbed doses (1-100 kGy) are delivered at dose rates of 102-105 Gy s-1 or even higher. Water calorimeters have been used for this purpose for several years, but recently other materials such as graphite and aluminium have been used. These materials offer advantages of simpler construction and higher sensitivity. Dose estimates using these different types of calorimeters differ by ~5%, and the possible reasons for these discrepancies are discussed
