The properties of a 50 mm × 50 mm × 30 mm monolithic LaBr3:Ce scintillator crystal coupled to a position-sensitive multi-anode photomultiplier (PMT, Hamamatsu H9500), representing the absorbing detector of a Compton camera under study for online ion (proton) beam range verification in hadron therapy, was evaluated in combination with either absorptive or(More)
PURPOSE To compare different algorithms to optimize the scanning path in charged particle therapy with quasidiscrete scanning. We implemented a Hybrid Genetic Algorithm with Heuristics (HyGA) and combined it with clustering techniques. The performance was compared to Simulated Annealing (SA) and to commercially available treatment planning system (TPS). (More)
PURPOSE Development of a photon detection system designed for online range verification of laser-accelerated proton beams via prompt-gamma imaging of nuclear reactions. METHODS We develop a Compton camera for the position-sensitive detection of prompt photons emitted from nuclear reactions between the proton beam and biological samples. The detector is(More)
