Neutron services

Providing traceability to international standards

We provide ultimate confidence in neutron measurements, which in turn enables the safe operation of nuclear facilities and safety for radiation workers.

NPL has the UK’s world-leading neutron metrology facility, which provides instrument manufacturers with fluence and dose equivalent calibrations for monoenergetic neutrons with a broad energy range, thermal neutrons and radioisotope sources, as well as characterisation of customer radionuclide sources.

This capability can be applied to neutron radiation protection, personal dose meters, reactor neutron instruments, area survey instruments, radiation hardness and neutron spectroscopy.

We provide traceability to international standards, providing ultimate confidence in neutron measurements, thus enabling the safe operation of nuclear facilities and safety for radiation workers.

We have ongoing, trusted relationships with customers and all our work is backed up by a rigorous quality control system which is accredited to ISO 17025.
