What is DIS Dosimeter – Direct-ion Storage Dosimeter – Definition

The DIS dosimeter, direct-ion storage dosimeter, is based on the combination of an ion chamber and a non-volatile electronic charge storage element. Personal Dosimeter

Direct-ion storage dosimeter, DIS, is an electronic dosimeter, from which the dose information for both Hp(10) and Hp(0.07) can be obtained instantly at the workplace by using an electronic reader unit. The DIS dosimeter is based on the combination of an ion chamber and a non-volatile electronic charge storage element.

DIS dosimeter use an analog memory cell inside a small, gas-filled, ionization chamber. Incident radiation causes ionizations in the chamber wall and in the gas, and the charge is stored for subsequent readout. The DIS dosimeter is read at the user’s site through connection to an electronic reader unit. The DIS dosimeter is designed to clip to a breast pocket. The DIS series of personal electronic radiation dosimeters can operate at high dose rates and inside pulsed fields. It’s lightweight, but rugged. The DIS dosimeter represents a potential alternative for replacing the existing film and thermoluminescence dosimeters (TLDs) used in occupational monitoring due to its ease of use and low operating costs.
