1. Alanine-EPR High-Dose Radiation Metrology
Published: 1/25/2015
Author: Marc F Desrosiers
Abstract: A comprehensive guide to the calibration, use, and maintenance of the alanine-EPR metrology system for high-dose radiation dosimetry is presented. Alanine dosimetry is the system of choice for calibration services for all major primary and secondary ...

2. Post-Irradiation Study of the Alanine Dosimeter
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Published: 7/14/2014
Author: Marc F Desrosiers
Abstract: Post-irradiation stability of high-dose dosimeters has traditionally been an important measurement influence quantity. Though the exceptional stability of the alanine dosimeter response with time has rendered this factor a non-issue for routine work ...

3. Effects of Dose Fractionation on the Response of Alanine Dosimetry
Published: 6/28/2014
Authors: Marc F Desrosiers, John Logar, Brad Lundahl
Abstract: Alanine dosimetry is well established as a transfer standard and is becoming more prevalently used as a routine dosimetry system for radiation processing. Many routine measurement applications in radiation processing involve absorbed dose measurement ...

Published: 3/20/2014
Authors: Marc F Desrosiers, S Sholom
Abstract: The OSL dosimetry technique with teeth has been validated against the EPR dosimetry technique through a measurement comparison performed on the same teeth. The OSL reconstructed doses were found to be in agreement with corresponding EPR doses. Minimu ...

5. The Importance of Dosimetry Standardization in Radiobiology
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Published: 12/30/2013
Authors: Marc F Desrosiers, Larry A DeWerd, James Deye, Patricia Lindsay, Mark K. Murphy, Michael G Mitch, Francesca Macchiarini, Strahinja Stojadinovic, Helen Stone
Abstract: Radiation dose is central too much of radiobiological research. Precision and accuracy of dose measurements and reporting of the measurement details should be sufficient to allow the work to be interpreted and repeated and to allow valid comparisons ...

6. A Comparison of Harwell & FWT Alanine Temperature Coefficients for 25 °C to 80 °C
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 117.007
Published: 5/1/2012
Authors: Marc F Desrosiers, Anne M. (Anne Marie) Forney, James M Puhl
Abstract: Dosimeters used to monitor industrial irradiation processing commonly experience significant temperature rises that must be considered in the dose analysis stage. The irradiation-temperature coefficient for a dosimetry system is derived from the ...

7. Supplementary comparison CCR(IK)-S2 of standards for absorbed dose to water Co-60 gamma radiation at radiation processing dose levels
Published: 7/25/2011
Authors: Marc F Desrosiers, D T Burns, P J Allisy-Roberts, P H Sharpe, M. Pimpinella, V. Lourenco, Y. L Zhang, A Miller, V Generalova, V. Sochor
Abstract: Eight national standards or absorbed dose to water in Co-60 gamma radiation at the dose levels used in radiation processing have been compared over the range from 1 kGy to 30 kGy using the alanine dosimeters of the NIST and the NPL as the transfer do ...

Published: 1/4/2010
Authors: S Sholom, Marc F Desrosiers, V Chumak, N. Luckyannov, S.L. Simon, A Bouville
Abstract: Quality control dosimetry is important to the routine operation of a radiation processing facility. For many applications this dosimetry must be traceable to a national primary standard. After irradiation at an industrial facility, NIST-supplied t ...

9. A Study of the Alanine Dosimeter Irradiation Temperature Coefficient from 25°C to 80°C
Published: 9/1/2009
Authors: Marc F Desrosiers, M Peters, James M Puhl
Abstract: The response of high-dose-range chemical dosimeters is dependent on the dosimeter temperature during irradiation. Typically, irradiation temperatures are estimated by measurements, calculations, or some combination of the two. Then using the temper ...

10. Absorbed-Dose / Dose-Rate Dependence Studies for the Alanine-EPR Dosimetry System
Published: 9/1/2009
Authors: Marc F Desrosiers, James M Puhl
Abstract: Over the course of the last decade, routine monitoring of the alanine dosimetry system revealed a small but significant observation that, after examination, led to the characterization of a previously unknown absorbed-dose-dependent, dose-rate effect ...
