Abstract

Monte Carlo studies aimed at designing a modular 241Am-Be neutron irradiator for testing neutron detectors and personal dosimeters and processing large volume samples are reportedin this study.The evaluation of the shapes and thicknesses of the moderator and shielding materials was carried out by a MCNP5 Monte Carlo simulation code. The reliability of the simulation wasexperimentally verified by the activation of gold foils and TLD dosimeter measurements in anirradiation cell placed at the center of the test configuration.
