Today's monolithic silicon array detector for small field dosimetry: The Octa

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The dosimetry of small photon beams is challenging due to detector position uncertainties, dose averaging and lack of electronic equilibrium. Currently only few, single detectors are suitable for measurements in this context, and none is ideal. This study reports on the dosimetric characterization of small fields collimated by fixed cones, performed by a novel 2D monolithic silicon array detector, the Octa.
