An absolute determination of the absorbed dose rates to tissue from a 90Sr+90Y β-ray secondary standard source was attempted using an extrapolation chamber developed at the Calibration Laboratory of São Paulo. The performance of this chamber and its main characteristics are presented in this work. A comparison of the results obtained with those of the calibration certificate indicates an absorbed dose rate agreement within 1.0%. © 1999 American Institute of Physics.
