Abstract : The radiation dose integrator described here was designed and constructed to serve as a radiation monitoring unit of high sensitivity and wide application. It differs from the Victoreen integron in being up to 100,000 times as sensitive, and self-resetting. By suitable adaptation of the specially designed ionization chamber, the unit can be calibrated to measure neutron and gamma radiation in the range from tolerance doses (at tolerance rate) to large doses (fluxes of hundreds of r units per hour). In addition to this wide range of sensitivity the integrator has the following advantages: (1) AC operated; (2) High stability and reproducibility; (3) Dual counting and resetting controls; (4) Self-recording; (5) Ease in mobility of ionization chamber and control units.
