In recent years, Vietnam has experienced an increase in the use of radioactive sources, especially the applications of neutrons in industry, medicine and thus radiation protection monitoring has been of wide interest. Besides the main sources of neutrons detected in sealed radio-isotopic sources, nuclear reactors and neutron generators, neutrons are also encountered in high energy particle accelerator systems. The radiation field outside the shielding of accelerators is frequently dominated by the neutron component, which has complex and non-uniform energy distributions. Exposure to free neutrons can be hazardous since the interaction of neutrons with molecules in the human body can lead to chromosome damage and adversely affect human health. According to the recommendations of the International Commission on Radiological Protection (ICRP) for area monitoring, the ambient dose equivalent, H*(10), is used as an approximation of the protection quantity in radiation measurements of external exposure. The ambient dose equivalent measurement will provide necessary information for controlling the radiation at workplaces and defining restricted or prohibited areas. However, the precise measurement and assessment of neutron dose remains difficult due to the intrinsic characteristics of neutron radiation, for example, no-charge, continuous neutron fluence spectrum, etc.
