Abstract

Bubble detectors have become a mature technology and are used as neutron dosemeters in a wide range of applications. At the SCK-CEN and Belgonucléaire they are used as official personal neutron dosemeter for the personnel. In the European Commission (EC) project of Evaluation of Individual Dosimetry in Mixed Neutron and Photon Radiation Fields (EVIDOS), a whole range of neutron dosemeters were irradiated in workplace fields in nuclear installations in Europe, including two types of bubble detectors. The responses of the bubble detectors are compared with the reference values determined using a directional spectrometer and a reference instrument to measure Hp(10).
