Scintillation properties of the YVO4:Eu3+ compound in powder form: its application to dosimetry in radiation fields produced by pulsed mega-voltage photon beams.


The investigation of scintillation properties of europium doped yttrium orthovanadate shows the suitability of this material for fiber-based dose rate measurements. All measurements were carried out with a 6 MV Varian linear accelerator. The temperature dependence of the signal is lower than that of the plastic scintillators reported so far. By measuring… (More)
