Paper Abstract

The developed fiber-optic triple sensor allows in-vivo dose measurements in the tissue of the patient's body. In contrast to a fiber-optic twin-sensor the measurement with this sensor shows no irreproducibilities caused by irradiation effects on the transmission fibers, which connect the sensor with the evaluation system. It consists of two radiation sensitive fibers and a radiation resistant fiber (HCG-fiber), which is the same fiber as the one used to transmit the sensor signal to the evaluation electronics.
