PTW 23344 0.2cc Soft X-Ray Chamber.

The 23344 soft X-ray chamber is used for absolute dose measurements in low-energy photon beams as used superficial radiation therapy.  The sensitive volume is larger than that of the 23342 chamber, giving a higher signal at the cost of a lower spatial resolution.  Correction factors needed for the determination of absorbed dose to water are available.  The chamber is designed for the use in solid state phantoms.


• Ultra thin entrance window

• For low-energy photons from 8 keV to 35 keV

• Suitable for use in air and in solid state phantoms
