Paper Abstract

The ability to pipe beams of X-rays and energetic particles (protons, ions, and electrons) through thin, flexible, hollow, crystalline fibers has enormous potential as a therapeutic aid in the treatment of certain types of cancers. This report describes the theory of, and initial experiments with, the first fibers intended for the transmission of ionizing radiation.
