|Abstract:||A technique for neutron dosimetry and spectrometry base don neutron activation of different metal discs has been studied. After exposure to a neutron field the activated radionuclides in the discs are detected using low-level-gamma-ray spectrometry and the neutron spectrum is obtained using a spectrum unfolding technique. In order to validate the method an irradiation was performed in a well-characterized252Cf neutron reference field. Furthermore, the detector was used to determine the neutron fluence rate and spectrum at a storage place for MOX nuclear fuel. The results of the two measurements are reported and discussed.|
