Abstract

Simple collimated sets of thermoluminescent dosimeters were used for measuring dose rate distribution curves in the bremsstrahlung field of an electrostatic accelerator. The increased axial resolution of the detector set resulted in curves clearly indicating local radiation maxima related to the electron optical properties of the acceleration tubes. Radiation data were compared to those calculated from secondary electron trajectories and to statistical data on resistor breakdowns in the voltage divider chain.
