First measurements with a prototype ionization chamber are described to be applied in online monitoring of modulated fields in radiation therapy. The liquids isooctane, isononane (TMP) and tetramethylsilane (TMS) are used in a high purity grade in order to realize high current signals for electronic read-out in parallel at frequencies exceeding 10 Hz… CONTINUE READING
