Abstract: Suitable dosimeter methods have been proposed and tested, to measure the different dose contributions in small phantoms exposed to epithermal/thermal neutron beams designed for BNCT. One method is based on Fricke-gel dosimeter in small tubes of 2.8mm of external diameter, that allow determining profiles of gamma dose and of boron dose. The other method is based on the use of TLD-700 chips, from whose answer the contribution of thermal neutrons is subtracted by means of appropriate parameters of the glow curve.
