Utilizing radioluminescent properties of materials is one of the oldest methods for ionizing radiation detection and dosimetry. In the context of radiation therapy dosimetry and quality assurance, dosimeters composed of materials with unique radioluminescent characteristics in conjunction with optical fibers have practical advantageous properties including the ability to perform in vivo and intracavitary measurements with high spatial and temporal resolution. In this work, our recent progress toward design and characterization of fiber-based radioluminescent probes for radiation therapy dosimetry using spectroscopic techniques and specialty fiber optics is briefly reviewed.
