Title: Evaluation of Gas-filled Ionization Chamber Method for Radon Measurement at Two Reference Facilities

For quality assurance, gas-filled ionization chamber method was tested at two reference facilities for radon calibration: EML (USA) and PTB (Germany). Consequently, the radon concentrations estimated by the ionization chamber method were in good agreement with the reference radon concentrations provided by EML as well as PTB.
