Abstract
Over the past few years the Department of National Defence has contracted Bubble Technology Industries to design and manufacture "BUBBLE" neutron dosimeters. These detectors were the most sensitive available, gamma-ray insensitive and thus ideal for personal and experimental dosimetry. With the recent interest within DND in TREE (Transient Radiation Effects on Electronics) a modification of the bubble detector to an insensitive (capable of detection more than 100 rad), small, variable energy threshold device was seen as a natural step. The report describes the work done to accomplish this, including sonication techniques, energy calibration, and measurement of high neutron fluences in both fission and fusion fields. The conclusion is that the bubble detector is the most promising available for TREE experimentation.
