E0406: Novel Detection Techniques for Ion Beams

 

Main research topics

Specialisation on development of new measurement methods for:

    • ion spectroscopy: investigation of nuclear interactions of ion beams with the patient
    • ion radiography: high resolution imaging with ion beams
    • monitoring of therapy delivery: visualisation of the ion beam in the patient
    • development of quality assurance measurements for ion beams including verifications of patient treatment plans

→Transfer of the new methods into clinical application at the Heidelberg Ion Beam Therapy Facility
