The distribution of the absorbed dose within the irradiated product is a complex function of the product density and homogeneity, the position and shape of the radiation source, as well as the design of the irradiator. In this paper, detailed mapping of absorbed radiation doses in products of different density: gauze, plastic, and soil, is performed. Positions of minimum and maximum absorbed radiation dose were determined, and the homogeneity of irradiation of products was calculated using the ethanol-monochlorobenzene oscillotitrator dosimetry system.
