A new low pressure tissue-equivalent proportional counter (TEPC) in coaxial double cylindrical form has been developed to measure separately the microdosimetric spectrum from any desired energy band of neutrons in the presence of mixed field of faster neutrons. Details are given of the construction, measured gas gain and resolution characteristics and some applications for measurement of radiation quality of neutrons <850 keV of radioactive neutron sources.

Keywords: Microdosimetry, tissue-equivalent proportional counter (TEPC), microdosimetric spectrum
