Purpose: To develop the scintillating fiber array dosimeter to determine the proton beam range for the purpose of quality assurance of the patient in the proton therapy. Methods: A scintillating fiber dosimeter was composed of a commercial scintillating fiber optically coupled with organic based optical fiber. An array of scintillating fibers was settled inside a water bath. The scintillating light was amplified by photo multiplier tube before being gathered by commercial data acquisition system. Bragg peak a…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
