Radiological Training for Accelerator Facilities
Monitoring refers to the checking, testing, and surveying of
individuals, work areas, materials and equipment for ionizing
radiation and radioactivity.
Monitoring for radiation at accelerators can be complicated.
Special techniques and instrumentation may be necessary due
to the existence of:
Mixed radiation fields (photons, protons,
Very high energy radiation.
High intensities of radiation (dose rates).
Magnetic and RF fields.
Qualification of Monitors
