Absorbed dose rate seen by the different detectors as a function of the solar modulation parameter has been obtained by calculating the absorbed dose rate using equation (6) for a series of ϕ values covering the range between 400 MV and 1500 MV using 10 MV steps. All thin detectors overestimate the absorbed dose rate to the ICRU phantom (orange dashed line). These results indicate that measuring the absorbed dose rate using thin semiconductor detectors would result in an overestimation of the absorbed dose rate relative to the ICRU sphereradiological hazard to humans and that this overestimation increases as the detector thickness is reduced (CRaTER-μ). The dotted black line in the upper panel, overlapping the ICRU plot, represents the best fit in the least-squares sense.
