Paper Abstract

This paper describes a method to determine absorbed radiation dose inside a dewar at cryogenic temperatures. Results of using thermoluminescent dosimeters (TLDs) placed externally on the dewar and then extrapolated to obtain the inside dose are presented. TLDs measure the cumulative dose and a Si pin diode monitors real time dose during each Linac pulse. Dosimetry methods are taken from results from electron tests at a Linac using 4, 12 and 18 MeV electrons and a neutron test using Californium-252 (252Cf) fission neutrons.
