RODRIGUES, R.R. et al. Retrieval of GammaCell 220 irradiator isodose curves with MCNP simulations and experimental measurements. Braz. J. Phys. [online]. 2010, vol.40, n.1, pp. 120-124. ISSN 0103-9733. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-97332010000100017.
Gamma irradiator facilities can be used in a wide range of applications such as biological and chemical researches, sterilization of medical devices and products. Dose mapping must be performed in these equipments in order to establish plant operational parameters, as dose uniformity, source utilization efficiency and maximum and minimum dose positions. The isodoses curves are measured using dosimeters or computer simulations. This work evaluates the absorbed dose in the CDTN/CNEN GammaCell Irradiation Facility, using the Monte Carlo N-Particles (MCNP) code.
