Silicon-on-insulator (SOI) micro dosimeters have recently been used to successfully measure the radiobiological properties of mixed radiation fields typical of medical, space and radiation protection environments. These SOI devices consist of a 2D array of elongated parallelepiped diode structures. Charge collection studies have revealed that due to the electric field distribution within the planar SV, there are significant lateral charge diffusion effects which complicate charge collection and give rise to a less than ideal chord length variance. © 2009 AINSE
