    Ionization Chambers II. Cavity Ionization Chambers Cavity Ionization Chambers Cavity ionization chambers come in many varieties, but basically consist of a solid envelope surrounding a gas- (usually air-) filled cavity in which an electric field is established to collect the ions formed by radiation. An ionization chamber measures the charge from the number of ion pairs created within a gas caused by incident radiation. It consists of a gas-filled chamber with two electrodes; known as anode and electrodes may be in the form of parallel plates (Parallel Plate Ionization Chambers: PPIC), or a cylinder arrangement with a coaxially located internal anode wire.

The procedure recommended by different dosimetry protocols for the determination of the absorbed dose to air chamber factor, N D,pp, of plane-parallel chambers, comparing absorbed dose determinations in a high-energy electron beam with a reference cylindrical chamber having a known N D,cyl factor, has been investigated.

Attention has been focused on the case that the chamber serving as Cited by: I. INTRODUCTION. Plane‐parallel ionization chambers are commonly used for reference dosimetry of electron beams.

However, very few investigations have used this type of ion chamber in photon beams, 1–6 mostly focusing on behavior in cobalt‐60, so there is little information on their behavior in clinical photon beams. Additionally, parallel‐plate chambers were not included in protocols Cited by: ‘The Use of Plane-Parallel Ionization Chambers in High Energy Electron and Photon Beams’ (IAEA Technical Reports Series No.

Reference dosimetry protocols recommend the use of plane‐parallel chambers for calibration of low‐energy electron beams.

Following the TG‐51 protocol, plane‐parallel chambers must be used in beams with nominal energy less than 6 MeV (R 50 ≤ cm) and their use is preferred in beams with nominal energy less than 10 MeV (R 50 Cited by: 1.

Simulations of three plane-parallel ionization chambers have been used to determine directly the chamber- and quality-dependent factors f c,Q, instead of the product (s w,air p) Q, and (or) for a broad range of electron beam qualities (4–20 MeV) using divergent monoenergetic beams and phase-space data from two original calculation method has been used which.

A water-to-plastic ionization conversion factor k{sub pl} for PW and PWDT was computed for several commonly used Farmer-type ionization chambers with different wall materials in the range of MV photon beams.

Purpose: Plane-parallel chambers are recommended by dosimetry protocols for measurements in (especially low-energy) electron beams.

In dosimetry protocols, the replacement correction factor P{sub repl} is assumed unity for ''well-guarded'' plane-parallel chambers in electron beams when the front face of the cavity is the effective point of measurement.
