RippleCompensator for Scanning Particle Therapy

M. Arnold & J. Farr
Background: In 2003 T. Sakae et al. (Sakae T, et al. Rev Sci Instr. 2003;74(3)) proposed a new method for conformal irradiation using multilayer energy filters for scanned particle beams. This multilayer energy filter is a combination of a ripple filter to create a SOBP and a compensator to shift SOBPs[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
