Radiophotoluminescence (RPL) photography has been proposed for the measurement of the spatial dose distribution of high radiation fields. A pulsed UV-LED illuminator was prepared as an excitation light source for the RPL photography. The fluorescence image of RPL material was observed by a gated intensified CCD camera. In a preliminary experiment, several tens of spherical RPL detectors were placed near an intense 60Co source. The pulsed UV-LED illuminator and the gated intensified camera were pulse-operated to obtain the RPL photograph of the ball-shaped RPL detectors. The spatial dose distribution was calculated from the brightness of obtained RPL images.
