The potential of using the optically stimulated luminescence (OSL) technique with aluminium oxide (Al(2)O(3):C) dosimeters for a precise and accurate estimation of absorbed doses delivered by high-energy photon beams was investigated. This study demonstrates the high reproducibility of the OSL measurements and presents a preliminary determination of the depth-dose curve in water for a 6 MV photon beam from a linear accelerator. The uncertainty of a single OSL measurement, estimated from the… CONTINUE READING
