A Plastic Optical Fibre(POF) Based Real-Time Dosimiter for Clinical Radiotherapy(1)

The 8th International Symposium on Photonics and Optoelectronics(SOPO2015)——A novel extrinsic optical fibre X-Ray dosimeter for biomedical applications is presented. The scintillation material in the sensor tip emits visible light upon exposure to x-ray energy and the resultant low intensity light is coupled to a PMMA (poly methyl methacrylate) plastic optical fibre, which guides it towards a distal fluorescent optical spectrometer at 30m distance.
