MicroScint – high resolution and high frame rate beam profilers based on microscintillators

Proton therapy has been proved to be extremely important for medical purposes, as for cancer treatments. Till today, real-time beam profiles characterization remains a challenge due to the high-dose to which materials are exposed. The aim of the project is developing novel resin-based scintillators with micrometer resolution for beam profile monitoring. The active area, which can be considered disposable, minimizes the material budget exposed to the beam, such to be as rad-hard as possible.
