Abstract: MANY PEOPLE ARE EXPERIENCED IN MEASURING RADIATION DOSE FROM PHOTONS AND ELECTRONS. THESE TWO FORMS OF RADIATION INVOLVE SIMILAR MEASUREMENTS SINCE IT IS SECONDARY ELECTRONS PRODUCED BY THE PHOTONS WHICH ACRUALLY DELIVER THE DOSE. THE NEUTRON IS A HEAVY UNCHARGED PARTICLE. IT HAS NEARLY THE SAME MASS AS A PROTON, i.e. THE NUCLEUS OF A HYDROGEN ATOM. MOST OF THE NEUTRON DOSE IS ACTUALLY DEPOSITED BY SECONDARY KNOCK-AN PROTONS, BUT SIGNIFICANT FRACTIONS COME FROM OTHER HEAVY PARTICLES, SECONDARY ELECTRONS AND Y-RAYS.
