    Abstract

    A small scintillating fiber camera for space dosimetry was developed. The camera consists of a scintillating fiber stack bundled with 0.25-mm square fibers, two image intensifier units whose input windows are 40 mm in diameter, and two photomultipliers. Neutron events are distinguished from gamma-ray events by observing three-dimensional track images of recoil protons and electrons. Experimental results show that events caused by recoil protons with energies above 5 MeV can be distinguished from gamma-ray events. The purpose of this camera is to evaluate the LET of charged particles produced in the interaction of neutrons with the nucleus in scintillating fibers. The camera is expected to measure the dose contribution from higher energy neutron, especially, more than ∼10 MeV, which is the upper limit energy of the present measurement in space.
