1.1 This practice covers the preparation, handling, testing,
and procedure for using the ethanol-chlorobenzene (ECB)
dosimetry system to measure absorbed dose to water when
exposed to ionizing radiation. The system consists of a
dosimeter and appropriate analytical instrumentation. For
simplicity, the system will be referred to as the ECB system.
The ECB dosimeter is classified as a type I dosimeter on the
basis of the effect of influence quantities. The ECB dosimetry
system may be used as a reference standard dosimetry system
or as a routine dosimetry system.
