Abstract : High energy electrons, bremsstrahlung, and mixed neutron/gamma radiation fields are sometimes used in radiobiological experiments employing rats. This report describes the methods and results of a study of depth dose distribution in an acrylic rat phantom for each of these fields. Activation foils and thermoluminescent dosimeters were used to make the measurements.
