Purpose:This study investigated the effect of accumulated dose on radiophotoluminescent glass dosimeter in megavoltage photon.

Methods:45 commercially-available radio-photoluminescence glass dosimeters (RPLGD; GD-302M, Asahi Techno Glass Co., Shizuoka, JAPAN) were irradiated to 10 x 10 cm2 open-field with 6, 10 and 15 MV photon beams at 100 cm of source to surface distance and dose maximum depths. Each energy has consists of five groups which is consists of three detectors. A group #1 and #2 was irradiated about 1 Gy to 100 Gy, and estimated the integral dose response with and without annealing procedure. A group #3 was read the dose after irradiated 10 Gy of dose by 10 times repeatedly to estimate the fading effect of RPLGD. A group #4 and #5 was produced same ways with different irradiation dose such as 50 Gy for group #4 and 100 Gy for group #5.

Results:From the results of group #1 and #2, an annealed detector shows linear response to integral dose but other detectors without the annealing process, has supra linearity for integral dose especially close to 100 Gy dose. For group #3, #4 and #5, the dose response of repeated irradiation, the dose response was decreased about 15%, 12% and 7% for 6 MV, 10 MV and 15MV.

Conclusion:It was found that RPLGD response to accumulated dose was supra linear and this respond was altered with amount of accumulated dose to the RPLGD. In addition, the fading effect need to be concern with RPLGD.
