  • Contribution to non-clinical research programme; discussion: All
    • Smart phantom: concept and discussion: AK/All
      • We agreed that the instrumented (smart) phantom that can deliver a measurement of LET/dose shot-by-shot was a valuable contribution. So, we pursue the development of the sci-fi detector interleaved with the sample flasks.
      • AK presented the slides. Points noted:
        • Two proton energy ranges to be considered: 130--180 MeV; 60--120MeV. Proton energy spread ~1.5%.
        • Dose rates over flask surface: 0.5, 1, 2, 4 and 6 Gy. Delivered in spots of dimension 0.3x0.3 cm2. Each 'spot' has a fraction of the total dose, so that the dose to the flask adds up to the numbers given above.
        • Flask sizes: 3x1.5 cm2 and 8x5 cm2.
    • SmartPhanton or iPhantom ... we discussed. Eventually, VB observed that iPhantom sounded too much like EyePhanton. So, we've adopted SmartPhantom.
  • Towards a concept and specification for end station; discussion: All
    • Working towards proposal for 'LARA' or a part of LARA on the timescale of Dec/Jan.
    • We agreed to work on a specification/simulation of the endstation since this was a critical piece of the specification for LARA.
    • HT would work with SG and be the interface to Impeiral for both the SmartPhanton and the LARA endstation design.
