Calibration scope


The range of calibrations realized by the LWPD is listed below. All services are accredited. The formal scope of accreditation (in Polish) may be found here.

  • Irradiation of passive dosimeters (Cs-137 gamma-rays) in terms of Hp(10), Hp(0.07), Hp(3), H*(10), absorbed dose

  • Calibration of dose rate meters, electronic dosimeters (Cs-137 gamma-rays). Dose rate range 1 μGy/h – 1 Gy/h

  • Calibration of surface contamination monitors in terms of surface emission rate per unit area

            – Alpha emitters (Am-241, Pu-239)
            – Beta emitters (Sr-90/Y-90, Cl-36, C-14)
