Abstract : The report concerns experimental 14 MeV neutron dosimetry using mice as neutron scattering samples and an LD 50/30 study of mice using 14 MeV neutrons and 2 MeV X-rays. The irradiations for the LD 50/30 study were carried out using computed neutron-flux-to-dose values. The experimental neutron dosimetry study is described, not only for mice but for three tissue-equivalent type materials: polyethylene, nylon, and Shonka plastic.
