Experimental proposal Test of radiation protection instrumentation in HiRadMat
The knowledge of the response of radiation protection detectors in pulsed fields is very important, since this is a typical condition often encountered with stray radiation fields around particle accelerators at CERN and elsewhere. This document presents a proposal for testing a prototype detector and commercial instrumentation in use with the RAMSES monitoring system, due to the unique conditions that can be found in the HiRadMat facility. These tests can be extended to include instrumentation in use at other laboratories, both commercial devices and prototype units, and become an intercomparison benchmark exercise. Additional measurements include Bonner Sphere Spectrometry (BSS) measurements to verify experimentally the neutron spectra and ambient dose equivalent rates simulated by FLUKA inside HiRadMat.
