A solid-state microdosimeter for dose and radiation quality monitoring for astronauts in space

Journal Article


Abstract


  • IEEE This paper presents a study of the response of the silicon on insulator (SOI) microdosimeter with 3-dimensional (3D) sensitive volumes (SV) to 400 MeV/u 16O and 500 MeV/u 56Fe ions mimicking Galactic Cosmic Rays outside and inside the International Space Station (ISS). An average quality factor (Q) and the dose equivalent (H) of the radiation field were obtained experimentally and the results were compared with GEANT4 simulations.
