Description

This item was taken from the IEEE Conference ' Response of a SOI microdosimeter to a /sup 238/PuBe neutron source ' The response of a solid state microdosimeter based on semiconductor on insulator (SOI) technology to a /sup 238/PuBe neutron source was investigated. Simulations of the device response using the GEANT4 Monte Carlo toolkit are also presented. The microdosimetric spectra was measured for lineal energies above 1 keV//spl mu/m. The possible application of the SOI microdosimeter for radiation protection applications in the form of a personnel microdosimeter is suggested.
