Beam Processing is GMP approved
Irradiation with low-energy electrons (100 – 300 keV)
results in dose gradients across the thickness of the dosimeters that are
typically used for dose measurement at these energies. This leads to
different doses being measured with different thickness dosimeters
irradiated at the same electron beam. In order to overcome this problem a
new concept is introduced of correcting all measured doses to the average
dose in the first micron – Dµ.
We have applied the concept to dose measurements with different thickness
dosimeters at two electron accelerators operating over a range of energies.
The uncertainties of the dose measurements were evaluated, and it was shown
that the dose in terms of Dµ
was the same at each energy for all dosimeters. Using the concept of Dµ
it is therefore possible to calibrate and measure doses from low energy
electron irradiations with measurement traceability to national standards.
That give us an GMP approved technology.
