Use of Nuclear Research Emulsions for Fast-Neutron Dosimetry


THE use of nuclear research emulsion for the measurement of fast neutron doses has been described by Titterton1. The purpose of this communication is to describe an extension of this technique to the measurement of energy absorption in hydrogenous material irradiated by fast neutrons.
