Abstract : The gamma-ray leakage from the Aberdeen Pulse Radiation Facility (APRF) fast-burst reactor has been measured. A BGO spectrometer was used to measure spectrum, and a Geiger counter was used to measure dose. The two detectors were consistent, but measured about 60 percent more dose than indicated by calculation.
