    Neutron-sensitive diodes are practical monitors for comparing damage delivered to electronic devices among different test facilities. Heat treatment of the diodes before readout is shown to eliminate effects of temperature variations between exposure and readout. This allows the comparisons to be done on a mail-in basis. The results of such a comparison among several neutron facilities is presented.
