    Abstract

    It should be assumed that the shape of the neutron energy spectrum and the neutron flux intensity will change during a long-term materials irradiation. The neutron dosimetry effort should have three primary goals: (1) dosimetry should be concentrated on the range of neutron energies of most importance for the radiation damage process; (2) the effective half-lives of the dosimeters should be less than the irradiation duration; and (3) appropriate corrections should be made for changes in the neutron spectrum and flux intensity during the irradiation.
