    P.I.N. silicon diodes and quartz damage monitors are well suited to complement conventional flux-fluence monitors in the range Esub(n)>=100 keV. When using Si-P.I.N. diodes as fluence monitors an accuracy of 8 to 10% can be expected when Ksub(F) is determined from the characteristics of a large sample of the population. Better accuracy can be achieved by individually calibrating the diodes in a fission spectrum subsequent to irradiation in the unknown environment. Partial isothermal annealing of the diodes at 450C for 2 to 3 days minimises room temperature effects
