Induced activity in a high-energy linear accelerator
Research output: Contribution to journal › Article
Activation products which contribute significantly to the exposure of the staff operating the accelerator were found in the accelerator head in the transparent holder for the lead blocks and in the 60 degrees wedge filter made of lead. A proper choice of material in these parts of the accelerator could easily reduce this exposure without excessive changes in the construction. The absorbed dose-rate level should always be checked before maintenance is carried out inside the accelerator head.
