PTW 60018, Dosimetry Diode SRS.


The 60018 Dosimetry Diode SRS is ideal for dose measurements in photon fields with a maximum field size of 10 cm x 10 cm and with a maximum energy of 6 MV. The very high response of this detector allows to measure beam profiles with a very high resolution and very short dwell time. The Diode SRS is thus typically used for beam profile measurements in stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS).


• Waterproof, disk-shaped silicon diode detector with sensitive volume of only 0.3 mm³

• Designed for dose measurements in small photon fields with a maximum energy of 6 MV and up to a field size of 10 cm x 10 cm

• Excellent spatial resolution

• High response, very low noise

•Thin entrance window for measurements in the vicinity of surfaces and interfaces
