A deficiency in the implementation of current radiation protection is the determination of the ambient dose equivalent H*(10) and the directional dose equivalent H´(0.07) in pulsed radiation fields. Conventional dosimeter systems are not suitable for measurements in photon fields comprising short radiation pulses, which consequently leads to high detector loads in short time periods. Nevertheless, due to the implementation of advanced medical accelerators for cancer therapy, new medical diagnostic devices as well as various laser machining systems, there is an urgent need for suitable dosimeter systems for real time dosimetry. In this paper, a detector concept based on an organic scintillator and a full digital data analysis with the aim of developing a portable, battery powered measurement system is presented.
Key words: radiation protection / dose rate measurements / pulsed radiation fields / organic scintillation detector
