integrated neutron fluxmedical dictionary

<radiobiology> Sum (integral) of the neutron flux (neutrons per unit time per unit area, see flux) over all time, total number of neutrons which passed through a unit area. Important figure-of-merit in testing effects of neutron radiation on materials, and in assessing how long such materials can survive exposure to neutron sources (such as fission reactor cores and D-T fusion plasmas).
