Pyramid is investing heavily in an all-new line of FLASH-compatible ion chambers, detectors, and electronics. We trailblazed the adoption of pencil beam scanning in Proton Therapy and we are doing it again with FLASH.
These products are specially designed with ultra-high dose rates in mind. The IC64-6, BC-75, and BC-145 have already been used in multiple UHDR fields, using Protons, Photons, and Electrons, and we can’t wait to see what comes next. Contact our engineering and sales team for your project.
One of the unique challenges of FLASH is validating detectors. Even the best ion chambers and diodes can have non-linear performance in extreme current density situations.
Using a beam collector, you can measure the total quantity of Electrons or Protons independent of charge density. This allows a researcher to characterize the performance of their beams with certainty.
Using shoot-through style FLASH, a beam collector can be used for absolute real-time dosimetry. When used in combination with a FLASH-ready ion chamber, you can create a complete view of the beam.
Our beam collectors come in a couple of varieties, multi-layer, used for depth vs charge measurements, or monolithic, used for absolute charge calibration. The monolithic collector comes in two sizes, one for collecting static beams, and one for collecting scanned areas.
