Abstract

Gel dosimeters in form of layers have shown noticeable potentiality for in-phantom dose profiling and imaging in BNCT neutron fields. Such dosimeters give the possibility of achieving spatial dose distributions of each dose contribution in neutron fields. The various dose components are separated by means of pixel-to-pixel manipulations of pairs of images acquired with gel dosimeters having different isotopic compositions. The reliability of polymer-gel-layer dosimeters (PGLD) for BNCT has been studied and their utilisation limits have been inspected.
