30 May 1995 Low-level gamma dosimetry using low-leakage diodes
Author Affiliations +
Low-leakage silicon p-i-n diodes have been investigated for gamma rate dosimetry. Radiation- induced current response was measured versus gamma flux rate in the range of 107 to 109 gamma-photons/cm2(DOT)s. Energy deposition dose rates inferred from radiation-induced current agree well with expected results based on gamma energy-absorption coefficients. Degradation of diode leakage current due to total dose was also tested.
