Reitz G, Beaujean R, Kopp J, Leicher M, Strauch K, Heilmann C. Results of dosimetric measurements in space missions. Radiat Prot Dosimetry. 1998;70(1-4):413-8.
Detector packages consisting of thermoluminescence detectors (TLDs), nuclear emulsions and plastic nuclear track detectors were exposed in different locations inside spacecraft. The detector systems, which supplement each other in their registration characteristics, allow the recording of biologically relevant portions of the radiation field independently. Results are presented and compared with calculations. Dose equivalents for the astronauts have been calculated based on the measurements; they lie between 190 microSv d-1 and 860 microSv d-1.
