Title Health physics experience around synchrotron radiation beamlines
Abstract Many electron storage rings are under construction world wide for use as synchrotron radiation facilities. Very little information has been published to help health physicists design and test synchrotron radiation beamlines. Practical advice is given. The operational health physics problems around the SRS beamlines at Daresbury Laboratory England, for the past ten years, and more recently at the ESRF Grenoble, are discussed. Guidance for the design of beamlines and shutters is given for radiation of characteristic energy from 4 to 100 keV. Guidance for the design of hutches including shielding joints and service labyrinths is given. Shielding for gas bremsstrahlung is described. The energy response curves for the portable X-ray monitors used are compared with the scattered synchrotron radiation spectra from SRS dipole and wiggler beamlines.
