Abstract
Polystyrene dye doped plastic optical fiber was prepared and used to detect gamma and beta radiation from I151 and TeO4 gamma tracers typically used to get images of tumor areas within the human body. Absorption and fluorescence emission of TMQ, PBDBD365, POPOP styrene doped was performed under gamma and UV-irradiation. The fluorescence efficiency of the binary system PBDBD365-POPOP and the ternary TMQ- PBDBD365-POPOP was compared and according to the experimental results it was shown that the presence of the TMQ dye enhance the fluoresce obtained under I151 radiation. Systematic characterization of the binary system was performed as function of primary dye concentration .
