TE ION CHAMBER
model 1030 is a Pulse Survey Meter. It has been optimized for use
in pulsed radiation fields and will measure absorbed dose from any
penetrating radiation including x-rays, gamma rays, neutron and
high energy particles. It has both rate and integrate ranges.
The detector is a cylindrical parallel plate ion chamber with interleaved
collection and signal plates. This results in excellent collection
efficiency. The detector is constructed of tissue equivalent plastic
and the filling gas is also tissue equivalent.
The instrument has been tested in fields of 10 Megarads per hour
instantaneous with excellent response. If you make beam on measurements
in nanosecond fields, you should consider the Model 1030.
