Jeppe Brage Christensen,


This repository contains the measurement data for the manuscript with the same title. The Monte carlo simulations are detailed at The dataframes below contain the raw data for the LET determinations with optically stimulated luminescence detectors (OSLDs), thermoluminescence detectors (TLDs), and fluorescence nuclear track detectors (FNTDs) as detailed in the paper. The name of the data frame refers to (i) the detector type and (ii) the institute that carried out the measurement and analysis with respect to the abbreviations defined in the paper. The LET calibration curves published in the manuscript are used to relate the detector response to each type of LET averaging. The files contain the in the format: * OSLD_df.csv: a row with the results for each OSLD analysed for each detector and measurement position. The UV/blue ratio is used to determine the averaged LET for each OSLD. * TLD_IFJ.csv: TLD data from IFJ, where each row provides the information from each group of analysed TLDs. * TLD_SCK.csv: TLD data from SCK, where each row providesthe information from each group of analysed TLDs. * FNTD_spectra.csv: The measured LET spectra for the positions 1b, 1c and 2, which---depending on its weight---are used to calculate fluence- and dose-averaged LET.
