Investigations of a Novel HyperscintTM Plastic Scintillator Detector and Hyperspectral Analysis Approach in a 74 MeV Proton Beam

A novel plastic scintillator and spectral analysis approach (Hyperscint™) was investigated in a 74 MeV proton beam for stem effect, dose and dose rate response, and suitability to provide a Cerenkov-free reference spectrum for use in MV x-ray dose calibrations.
