Short Title: Real Time SR
Responsible HRP Element: Space Radiation
Collaborating Org(s):
Funding Status: Completed - Task completed and produced a deliverable
Procurement Mechanism(s):
Low pressure, tissue equivalent, proportional counters are routinely used to measure the dose and radiation quality in space. A new approach to collecting and analyzing data will be developed in order to provide the information needed to improved models of cancer risk and to better evaluate radiation shielding.


By measuring lineal energy simultaneously in 3 different size sites we expect to be able to destinguish between high energy heavy ions and lower energy lighter ions that have the same stopping power.
