Abstract: This report describes dosimetry techniques used by EURADOS Working Group 9 (Radiation Dosimetry in Radiotherapy) to measure out-of -field doses for use in radiotherapy. Several passive dosimeter types were used, based on the physical principles of thermoluminescence (TLD), optically simulated luminescence (OSL) and radiophotoluminescence (RPL), in addition to an ionization chamber used as a reference standard. Superheated drop, bubble damage and track etch detectors were used specifically for neutron measurements. In this report, doses...
