AbstractThe PTW microDiamond synthetic diamond detector and the Exradin W1 plastic scintillation detector (PSD) are new commercially available detectors designed for small field dosimetry. This work aims to examine the performance of a single version of each detector for reference and relative dosimetry applications in standard and small fields. Uncertainties are analyzed to assess the accuracy of measurements made using these detectors.
