The properties of a new polymer gel with two sensitivities, made specifically for high-dose-gradient dosimetry, were investigated. The measurements were performed at NIST using a 1cmx1cm calibrated (60)Co field, and a 1cm active diameter (90)Sr/(90)Y beta particle source. A high-resolution laser CT scanner was used to quantify the response. The results show… CONTINUE READING
