In this study, we fabricated a fiber-optic radiation sensor with an organic scintillator to measure the high-energy photon beam from a clinical linear accelerator, and a two-dimensional fiber-optic sensor array to measure high-resolution and real-time dose distributions for small field radiotherapy dosimetry. The scintillating lights generated from each organic sensor probe embedded and arrayed in a water phantom are guided by 10 m plastic optical fibers to the light-measuring device. Two-dimensional photon beam distributions in a water phantom were measured for photon beams with different energies and field sizes. Also, percent depth dose curves for 6 and 15 MV photon beams were obtained.
