     Don't know if this is what you are looking for,  but there are neutron 
calibration articles by Eisenhauer and Schwartz and/or  Hunt (Britain) in 
the Health Physics literature.
    If you email Henry Kahnhauser at Brookhaven Lab, he  might email you a 
copy of a calibration procedure I wrote for calibration of a  Bonner 
Multisphere (neutron) spectrometer.  Or Not????
    Specific questions, email me.  I've done some  photon/gamma 
calibrations also.  But not with those high dose calibration  machines.

Can  somebody point me to a good (readable) description of the rad monitor  
calibration process.
What, I need is something that provides a  description of how the process 
proceeds, as in:

primary calibration  => secondary calibration=> tertiary/transfer  

Basically our group performs radiation (source)  transport,  sensitivity 
and setpoint calculations, but we're just now  being asked to answer 
questions related to calibration.  I expect  that they can/should be 
referred back to the vendor, but still, we should  have a reasonable 
understanding of what's being asked. (We've got a fair  amount of "water 
cooler" information, but nothing truly complete.)
Thx  in advance  - - jmr
