abstract

  • A recently developed procedure for estimating the quality factor from microdosimetric data is applied to a published experiment involving tritium. Arguments are presented indicating that the observed value is most likely an estimate of a lower limit for this quantity. It is concluded that the data support a value of 2 for the tritium quality factor.
