Final Report - POFGARD (Plastic optical fibre gamma radiation dosimeter)

Project ID: 239207
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE


This is the final Report of the POFGARD project, which was funded under the European Commission's (EC) Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) and aimed to investigate the use of polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) based plastic optical fibre (POF) as ionising radiation sensors, suitable for use in small-field radiotherapy dosimetry.

The document firstly outlines the project background and then focuses on the utilised process for sensors' fabrication. It also includes a brief overview of the developed innovations. Furthermore, the potential social and economic impact of the proposals is presented, along with the training and professional development of the involved researcher. Finally, the overall conclusions from the POFGARD project are summarised.
