Impact of the introduction of ICRP publication 103 on neutron dosimetry

Sato, Tatsuhiko   ; Endo, Akira   ; Yasuda, Hiroshi*; Niita, Koji*

A set of the conversion coefficients from fluence to the effective dose has been calculated for neutrons and protons over wide energy ranges based on the instruction given in ICRP 103, using the PHITS code. The calculated values are generally smaller than those based on ICRP Publication 60, predominantly owing to the revision of $$w$$$$_{R}$$ for those particles. The impact of the introduction of ICRP 103 on the dosimetry for high-energy particles will be discussed by comparing between the ICRP 103- and ICRP 60-based effective doses for aircrews as well as workers in high-energy accelerator facilities.
