- Comply with the standard ISO 4037 part 31
- Represent parts of human bodies regarding back-scattering of the incident radiation
- Suitable for calibrations and type tests of personal dosimeters, because they measure the quantities
- Hp(0.07) and Hp(10)
The ISO calibration phantoms comply with the standard ISO 4037 part 31 which describes standard test phantoms for calibration and type tests of personal dosemeters, that measure the dose quantities Hp(0.07) and Hp(10). The phantom composition is acrylic material (PMMA). Three types representing parts of human bodies in regard to back-scattering of incident radiation are available:
- Slab phantom: The water slab phantom represents the human torso and consists of a 300 mm x 300 mm x 150 mm cube, which is filled with water. The front wall is 2.5 mm thick; all other walls are 10 mm thick.
- Pillar phantom: The water pillar phantom represents a lower arm or leg and consists of a circular cylinder with 73 mm diameter and 300 mm length, which is filled with water. The wall is 2.5 mm thick; the bottom and cover plates are each 10 mm thick.
- Rod phantom: The acrylic rod phantom represents a finger and consists of a circular acrylic cylinder with 19 mm diameter and 300 mm length.
