Abstract
A commercial fast-neutron dosimeter consisting of a wide-base silicon diode has been tested for possible use as a dosimeter for military personnel. A sensitivity of about 1 mV per tissue rad has been observed for 2.9-MeV, 14.9-MeV and Am-Be neutrons. These diodes are essentially insensitive to gammas.
