Abstract : This document summarizes the neutron spectral measurements and the neutron and gamma-ray spectral calculations for five different irradiation geometries commonly employed in biological and semiconductor radiation-damage studies: freefield in both ER1 and ER2 exposure rooms; behind a 2-inch lead wall and inside an exercise wheel; behind a 6-inch lead wall and inside a 2-inch lead cave; and at the center of a tissue-equivalent phantom located behind a 6-inch lead wall.
