In this study, a one-dimensional fiber-optic scintillating detector was developed for electron-beam therapy dosimetry. Each fiber-optic detector contains an organic scintillator as a sensitive volume and it is embedded and arrayed in a plastic phantom to measure one-dimensional high-energy electron-beam profiles of clinical linear accelerators. Plastic optical fibers guide the scintillating light which each detector probe generates to a photodiode array. The one-dimensional electron-beam profiles in the plastic phantom were measured in two different field sizes and for two electron-beam energies. Also, isodose and two-dimensional dose distributions in the plastic phantom were obtained using the one-dimensional scintillating detector array with two different electron beam energies.
