Small Field Dosimetry with Beryllium Oxide Ceramic Fibre Optic Dosimeters

Dosimetry

Honours project: This project will involve Monte-Carlo simulations of the beryllium oxide (BeO) ceramic dosimeter to determine the expected dose deposition when exposed to small fields. Experimental measurements will then be performed at the Royal Adelaide Hospital and compared to other dosimetry systems.
