Abstract: 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…
