Saturation current of miniaturized fission chambers

Abstract : We present the detailed formulae of the saturation currents for the four main categories of fission chambers operating in current mode. The results obtained are function of simple parameters: number of fission reactions within the chamber deposits, geometric characteristics of the electrodes and filling gas properties. A direct relation between the saturation current values and the ambient neutron flux is thus established. These results should reduce the number, the duration and the cost of the calibration procedures required to operate the fission chambers.
