A new proton beam monitoring system and its dedicated electronics is under development for the TOP-IMPLART proton therapy facility, based on 10 to 100 Hz pulsed proton LINAC, with maximum kinetic energy of 230 MeV. The system consists of segmented ionization chambers that will measure the beam intensity profile, position and direction to monitor the fully… CONTINUE READING
