Abstract
The dependence of the losses induced by ionizing radiation on the ambient conditions is studied for lead glass fibers in the parameter range of relevance for medical technology. On the basis of these results, a concept is developed for a fiber-optic dosimeter system and initial measuring results are communicated using an experimental arrangement of this type of dosimeter system under application-oriented conditions. Some applications of this system in radiotherapy are shown which are not feasible with conventional dosimeters at all, or only in exceptional cases, and which can contribute to safe handling and more effective use in radiotherapy.
