Abstract
The change in the potential of an aqueous redox solution during irradiation is, under certain conditions, a very sensitive analytical method for determining the amount of chemical change taking place. Use has been made of this phenomenon in the design of a chemical dosimeter in which dose is read as a potential difference. An essential part of the dosimeter is a compartment sealed by one or more glass electrode membranes through which electrolysis and potential measurement can be carried out. Results demonstrate the feasibility of an integrating chemical dosimeter in the range 5 - 10000 rads.
