Abstract

In this report on overview is given of the scientific work done in the Strategic Research project “Improved light ion beam dosimetry” and work under the 2001-2004 National Measurement System, Ionising Radiation Metrology Programme of the UK Department of Trade and Industry. It is amended with work performed under the 2004-2007 National Measurement System, Ionising Radiation Metrology Programme of the UK Department of Trade and Industry to finalize work initiated in the earlier programmes. This work also substantially benefited from research projects from Clatterbridge Centre of Oncology and from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC) and collaboration with Ghent University Belgium.
The introduction is a very brief initiation in the field of proton beam radiotherapy and the second chapter provides an extensive overview of the literature. The third chapter presents and discusses the experimental work performed in the scope of this project and the fourth chapter discusses the simulations that were done in support. The conclusions section summarises the key achievements and the opportunities this work created for NPL.
