Development of three kinds of tissue substitutes for a physical phantom in neutron dosimetry

Tsuda, Shuichi  ; Endo, Akira   ; Yamaguchi, Yasuhiro

Three kinds of tissue substitutes were synthesized in order to develop a physical phantom for neutron dosimetry. The optimal elemental compositions and densities were determined using a Monte Carlo simulation method, based on absorbed dose distributions of neutrons of a few MeV in various materials. The characteristics of the synthesized tissue substitutes were verified by absorbed dose measurements using monoenergetic neutron sources and a $$^{252}$$Cf neutron source. It was found that the developed tissue substitutes, NAN-, HAI- and HONE-JAERI, have tissue equivalence to actual tissues within 10 % accuracy for neutrons in most of common fast neutron fields.
