Abstract

The measurement of spatially resolved high doses in microbeam radiation therapy has always been a challenging task, where a combination of high dose response and high spatial resolution (microns) is required for synchrotron radiation peaked around 50 keV. The x-ray induced Sm3+ → Sm2+ valence conversion in Sm3+ doped fluorophosphates glasses has been tested for use in x-raydosimetry for microbeam radiation therapy. The conversion efficiency depends almost linearly on the dose of irradiation up to ∼5 Gy and saturates at doses exceeding ∼80 Gy. The conversion shows strong correlation with x-ray induced absorbance of the glass which is related to the formation of phosphorus-oxygen hole centers. When irradiated through a microslit collimator, a good spatial resolution and high “peak-to-valley” contrast have been observed by means of confocal photoluminescence microscopy.
