(Qu.) What are the main differences between the Radiological Converter and the Mass Activity Converter++?
(Ans. Nucleonica Team) The Radiological Converter is a further development of the Mass Activity Converter++ with the following additional features:
* The list of conversion quantities now includes a) Air Kerma Rates b) Exposure Rates and c) Ambient Dose Equivalent Rates H*(10) for approximately 1500 gamma and x-ray emitting radionuclides (depending on the database used).
* The threshold energy used in the calculations for dose quantities can be set by the user to investigate the effect of low energy photons on the dose calculations.
* Account is taken of short-lived daughter nuclides when a parent nuclide is selected.
* The underlying dataset used in the calculations can be selected from a list of international nuclear datafiles (JEFF3.1, ENDF/B-VII.1, 8th TORI)

The Radiological Converter thereby provides the internationally accepted ambient dose H*(10) and is suitable for declarations of radioactive packages.
