We report on the β-Na(Gd,Lu)F4:Tb3+ nanodosimeter which has a particle size of only 85 nm but exhibits a large energy storage capacity of (2.83 ± 0.05) x 1016 photons per gram of phosphor - comparable to commercial benchmarks. The dose response is linear up to a dose of 30 Gy and the dosimeter can be read out optically. The small particle size allows to use the dosimeter for in-vivo and in-situ dosimetry on a cellular level. In a proof of concept we show that the phosphor can be used for dosimetric imaging applications when incorporated in a transparent polymer layer. View this paper
