Abstract

This article describes the purpose, the proposed problems and the reference solutions of an international comparison on neutron spectra unfolding in Bonner spheres spectrometry, organised within the activities of EURADOS working group 6: computational dosimetry. The exercise considered four realistic situations: a medical accelerator, a workplace field, an irradiation room and a skyshine scenario. Although a detailed analysis of the submitted solutions is under preparation, the preliminary discussion of some physical aspects of the problem, e.g. the changes in the unfolding results due to the perturbation of the neutron field by the Bonner spheres, is presented.
