DOSEtrace - Research Capabilities for Radiation Protection Dosimeters

About this project

The overall objective of this project is to improve SI traceable measurements of operational radiation protection quantities in the participating NMIs from emerging countries. This project will ensure that they have adequate equipment and procedures for measuring and assessing human exposure and radioactive contamination of the environment.

The main goal of this project is to establish and harmonise the procedures for the calibration of radiation protection dosimeters in various types of radiation protection beams with a special focus on achieving a measurement uncertainty of 5 % (k=2) or less.

The improvement will be accomplished through research on operational quantities for external radiation exposure and secondary standards for eye lens dosimetry. In addition to these main goals, participating NMIs will prepare individual strategies for radiation protection metrology development and they will discuss them with the EURAMET community in order to ensure a coordinated and optimised approach.
