Development of a hand-held fast neutron survey meter

Yoshida, Tadayoshi ; Tsujimura, Norio   ; Yamano, Toshiya*

A neutron survey meter with a ZnS(Ag) scintillator to measure recoil protons was built. The detection probe weighs approx. 2 kg, therefore providing us with true portability. Performance tests exhibited satisfactory neutron dosimetry characteristics at unmoderated or lightly moderated fission neutron fields and in particular work environments at a MOX fuel facility. This new survey meter will augment a routine neutron monitoring inconveniently being carried out by moderator-based neutron survey meters.
