Characterization of scintillating materials in use for brachytherapy fiber based dosimeters
This paper reports the characterization of two scintillating materials in powder form, Gadox and YVO embedded in a light-activated resin, used in a probe developed for oncological brachytherapy in-vivo dosimetry. The materials were characterized in terms of internal absorption, scintillation decay time, and light yield. The measurement of the optical characteristics highlighted a significant internal absorption at the scintillation light wavelength, with values of 6.5 dB/mm for Gadox and 14.1 dB/mm for YVO.
