A new spectroscopic method for measuring ferric diffusion coefficient in gelatin-based dosimeter gels

Abstract : A new absorption spectroscopy method which enables rapid measurement of the diffusion coefficient of Fe 3+ in gelatin gel used in dosimetry was investigated. The physical approach, the preparation and the experimental application of this new method were tested on the EasyDosit dosimetry gel and the results were validated by MRI measurement. The diffusion coefficients measured on this gel were then compared with those of the other gels presented in the literature. This gel, which is considered stable, has a small post-irradiation ion diffusion, despite the absence of a complexing or crosslinking agent. The diffusion coefficients of a range of dosimetry gels containing different proportions of gelatin were also measured and the results show diffusion coefficients D from 3.21.10 −10 m 2 .s −1 to 2.41.10 −10 m 2 .s −1 .
