Abstract : This invention relates to a pulsed radiation dosimetry apparatus utilizing a pin diode to detect pulsed radiation that may be produced by either a particle accelerator or a flash x-ray device. The detected radiation signal is integrated and then directly displayed on a digital meter. The present apparatus provides a direct readout of radiation dose in rads.
