Title: Australian Commonwealth standard of measurement for absorbed radiation dose, Part 2 - absorbed dose standard for graphite irradiated by a cobalt-60 teletherapy unit.
Authors: Sherlock, SL
Issue Date: Jun-1990
Publisher: Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation
Abstract: This report documents the absorbed dose standard for photon beams in the range from 1 to 25 MeV. Measurements of absorbed dose in graphite irradiated by a beam of cobalt-60 gamma rays from an Atomic Energy of Canada Limited (AECL) E1 Dorado 6 teletherapy unit are reported. The measurements were performed using a graphite calorimeter which is the primary standard for absorbed dose. The measurements are used to calibrate a working standard ion chamber in terms of absorbed dose in graphite.
