Selection and use of TLDS for high precision NERVA shielding measurementsAn experimental evaluation of thermoluminescent dosimeters was performed in order to select high precision dosimeters for a study whose purpose is to measure gamma streaming through the coolant passages of a simulated flight type internal NERVA reactor shield. Based on this study, the CaF2 chip TLDs are the most reproducible dosimeters with reproducibility generally within a few percent, but none of the TLDs tested met the reproducibility criterion of plus or minus 2%.
