abstract

  • To address the issue of eye lens dosimetry in nuclear industry, we initiated the project to quantify the beta and gamma-ray source term in CANDU power plants and to convert this source term into dosimetric quantities of interest, such as eye lens dose and personal dose equivalents Hp(10), Hp(0.07). This way, the eye lens dose can be compared with dosimetric operational quantities to evaluate whether independent dosimetry is required for eye lens protection, or present dosimetry is adequate.
