Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Dose distributions of 6-MeV electrons in the region of edges of metal and plastic collimators are compared using calculated and experimental data. The results of the study show an insignificant disagreement in the dose distributions: the difference in the penumbra widths does not exceed 1.1 mm.
