Background: A multilayer ionization chamber (MLIC) has been developed to measure and verify proton beam Bragg peak curves with variable modulation of the beam energy for the second generation of the PSI spot scanning proton therapy facility, Gantry 2. The detector is designed especially for the pencil[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
