RSC: Optically stimulated emission of LiF:Mg,Cu,P - Towards 3D optically stimulated luminescence dosimetry

Research output: Contribution to journal/Conference contribution in journal/Contribution to newspaperConference articleResearchpeer-review

With the introduction of highly conformal treatment modalities, dose verification in 3D is becoming more important than ever for patient-specific quality assurance of radiotherapy. Reusability of 3D dosimeters may be the path to cope with the cost-benefit issues caused by batch-to-batch fluctuations and intense calibration protocols in existing 3D systems. We present the idea of an envisioned (optically stimulated luminescence) OSL-based 3D readout system, which exploits the inherently reusable dosimetry properties of OSL. We provide the emission spectra of the OSL active material LiF:Mg,Cu,P (MCP) for three stimulation wavelengths (460 nm, 532 nm, and 664 nm), and summarize recently published optical characterization results to highlight the requirements of a readout system for an MCP-based dosimeter.
