C K. Ross, K Shortt, M Saravi, A Meghzifene, V M. Tovar, R A. Barbosa, C N. da Silva, F Gutt, Stephen M. Seltzer
Transfer chambers were used to compare the standards for 60Co air kerma maintained by seven laboratories. Six of the laboratories were members of the Sistema Interamericano de Metrolog a (SIM) regional metrological organization while the seventh was the

New National Air-Kerma Standard for Low-Energy Electronic Brachytherapy Sources

October 6, 2014

Lawrence T. Hudson, B.R. Maddox, H.S. Parks, B A. Remington, C. Chen, S Chen, S. T. Prisbrey, A. Comley, C A. Back, C. Szabo, John F. Seely, Uri Feldman, Stephen M. Seltzer, M. J. Haugh, Z. Ali
Line emission and broadband x-ray sources with x-ray energies above 10 keV have been investigated using a range of calibrated x-ray detectors for use as x-ray backlighters in high energy density (HED) experiments. The conversion efficiency of short- and

Fifty years of AAPM Involvement in Radiation Dosimetry
