Characterization of sensors and design of an embedded photodetectors array for beam profile measurements in radiotherapy

Abstract

In this work, the dosimetric performance of several Commercial Of The Shelf photodiodes was studied. They were tested against gamma rays from a teletherapy source and were characterized with the aim of building a one-dimensional array of dosimeters able to measure the the spatial distribution of dose in a radiotherapy irradiation field. An embedded system… (More)
