AbstractA dose rate measurement survey was performed at various locations inside the radiation chamber of the Cobalt-60 gamma irradiation facility located in Room 130, Building 20 at the University of Arizona. TLDs were used for the dose rate measurements. It was observed that the dose rates decrease rapidly with increasing distance from the source. Also, dose rates decreased with increased distance away from the centerline of the radiation chamber which is indicative of the position of the effective center of the source. Percent dose rates with respect to the dose rate of the calibration position were tabulated.
