Paper Abstract

A great deal of effort has been expended in recent years in developing fiber optic instruments, such as temperature, pressure, mechanical, and chemical sensors. However, very little has been done in the area of ionizing radiation detection using fiber optic based instruments. This is in spite of the inability of conventional radiation detectors to perform dose measurements remote from high field environs or in small volumes, such as in situ or in vivo dosimetery. A microminiature radiation detector coupled to an optical fiber could clearly overcome these conventional detector limitations. The present paper describes such a radiation dosimeter using a storage phosphor coupled to an optical fiber suitable for ionizing radiation dosimetry.
