An in vivo dosimetry system that uses p-type semiconductor diodes with buildup caps was characterized for clinical use on accelerators ranging in energy from 4 to 18 MV. The dose per pulse dependence was investigated. This was done by altering the source-surface distance, field size, and wedge for photons. The off-axis correction and effect of changing repetition rate were also investigated. A model was developed to fit the measured two-dimensional diode correction factors.
