N2 - A twin TEPC with electric-field guard tubes has been constructed to be used to characterize the BNCT field of the irradiation facility of LENA reactor.

By properly processing the two microdosimetric spectra, the gamma, neutron and BNC spectral components can be derived with good precision (~6%). However, direct measurements of 10B in some doped plastic samples, which were used for contructing the cathod walls, point out the scarce accuracy of the nominal 10B concentration value. The influence of the Boral door, which closes the irradiation channel, has been measured. The gamma dose increases significantly (+ 51%) when the Boral® door is closed. The crypt-cell-regeneration weighting function has been used to measure the quality, namely the RBEµ-value, of the radiation field in different conditions.
