Title: THE LID TANK SHIELDING FACILITY AT OAK RIDGE NATIONAL LABORATORY. PART III. INSTRUMENTATION

Abstract

The instrumentation at the Lid Tank Shielding Facility (LTSF) is described. Drawings or photographs of the gamma-ray, thermal-neutron, and fast- neutron detectors are included, and these detectors are discussed. The methods of detector application at the LTSF are also described, as well as the calibration techniques. The electronics associated with each detector is presented with appropriate references. The range of sensitivity of each detector is also given, along with estimates of the reliability of data from the detection system. (auth)
