Special issue on radiation dosimetry

This Month's Papers: Metrologia 

   This special issue of Metrologia on radiation dosimetry is the second in a 
   trilogy on the subject of ionizing radiation measurements, a field that is 
   overseen by Sections I, II and III of the CIPM's Consultative Committee for 
   Ionizing Radiation (CCRI). The work of Section II, on radionuclide metrology, 
   was covered in issue 44(4), published in 2007, and that of Section III, on 
   neutron metrology, will be covered in a special issue to be published shortly. 
   This issue covers the work of Section I (x-rays and γ rays, and charged particles).
