    Abstract

    This report describes two aspects of electron bean dosimetry, onone hand developaent of thin fil« dosimeters and measurements of their properties,and on the other hand developaent of calorimeters for calibration ofroutine dosimeters, e.g. thin films. Two types of radiochromic thin filmdosimeters have been developed in this department, and the properties ofthese and commercially available dosimeters have been measured and found tobe comparable. Calorimeters, which are in use for routine measurements, arebeing investigated with reference to their application as standardizing instruments, and new calorimeters are being developed.
