    Abstract

    Applications of the lithium drifted p-i-n junction semiconductor radiation detector in dosimetry are explored. Data on wavelength dependence for electromagnetic radiation, gamma-ray spectroscopy, and absolute sensitivity are given. The use of the device as the active component for a Bragg-Gray dosimeter is discussed. The application of the device to the measurement of charged particle spectra is discussed and typical experimental determinations are presented. The use of the detector for neutron dosimetry is discussed and the fundamental interactions for both thermal and fast neutrons are presented. Data on the stability of the active volume and the influence of storage conditions are presented.
