Measurement of radiation fields with small scintillators as detectors for radiation dose is an attractive method provided that the scintillator luminescence can be discriminated against other unwanted signals. In diagnostic radiology radioluminescence of the optical fibres required for a transmission of the luminescence to an optical detector is the only source for such an impairment of the signal. To find fibres with low radioluminosity a survey of ten commercial fibres including polystyrene… CONTINUE READING
