Abstract : Self-powered and low-powered solid-state electronic techniques were used to investigate the feasibility of satisfying military radiac instrumentation requirements. The development of a prototype integrated radiac instrument, based on a scintillator-photovoltaic cell concept, is proposed. The crucial parameters of the candidate components for the proposed instrument are discussed. This instrument would be capable of measuring gamma radiation from 10 R/h to 1000 R/h in a self-powered mode, and from 10 mR/h to 10 R/h in a low external powered mode; the instrument would also function as a dosimeter.
