SU-C-137-05: Reference Dosimetry for An 80 MeV/n Carbon Ion Beam Based On Graphite Calorimetry.

PURPOSE Comparison between the response of a primary standard graphite calorimeter and the response of an ionization chamber (IC) allows the estimations of values of the beam quality correction factor, kQ,Q0, for the IC. This factor is used in the IAEA TRS-398 dosimetric protocol to derive the absorbed dose-to-water using an IC. It depends on three… CONTINUE READING
