Description

In the past few years, miniaturized tissue- equivalent gas detectors operating at a nanometric level down to 35 nm, have been developed for application of microdosimetry in radiotherapy. It should be stressed that single ionization events dominate the distribution of low-LET radiation in nanometric sites and therefore their detection is of primary importance. A higher gas gain is necessary for reducing the simulated site. The gas gain factor has been measured for C3H8/CO2/N2/55/39.6/5.4, CH4/CO2/N2/64.4/32.5/3.1 and Ne/C2H4/C2H6/N2/41/39/16.7/3.3 TEG mixtures. The scope of the measurements was to find the highest stable gas gain, its dependence of TEG mixture pressure and counter geometry. Obtained results will be presented.
