Therefore the method, that was used, was based on the experimental determination of the flux density of thermal neutrons in a paraffin block and also used a flux to kerma conversion coefficient that allowed for the determination of dose values used to exposed the detectors.
La magnitud dosimetrica medida en contacto con los espesores de PMMA fue el kerma aire incidente (IAK), sin embargo para facilitar la comparacion de nuestros resultados estos valores fueron expresados en terminos de kerma aire en la superficie de entrada (ESAK), para lo cual se multiplico los valores de IAK por el factor de retrodispersion de 1,3 (ICRU, 2005).
