Dose assessment by the DIAS detectors

Dose assessment by the DIAS detectors is achieved by the measurement of linear energy transfer (LET) spectra based on calibration of the detectors with protons, and heavy nuclei such as carbon, neon, silicon, iron and krypton, manly at the GSI (Darmstadt) and HIMAC (Japan) accelerators.

It has also been demonstrated that protons and neutrons of similar energy produce similar LET spectra for the measurement approach used. Comparison of results obtained by DIAS with those of a standard TEPC at the CERN reference field show very good and consistent agreement, as do comparison with predictions of computer codes.
