Abstract

Radon risk assessment is carried out by means of accurate measurements with active or passive instrumentation. All radondetectors must be calibrated and tested using a radon chamber containing a known concentration of radon produced byspecific sources of 226Ra. Some chambers can also be used to test the response of detectors as a function of environmentalconditions. In this case, a calibration curve can be inferred with respect to change in one of the considered parameters. Forthis aim, a new radon chamber was designed and realised to perform calibration and to study the detector response in a largerange of variation of the environmental parameters (pressure, 700–1100 mbar; temperature, 5–508C; humidity, 10–90 %).The first experiments conducted to study the influence of environmental parameters on the detector response have shown flexibilityand ease of use of the chamber.
