A ridge carbon beam filter for Spreading Out the Bragg Peak (SOBP) up to 20 mm in the targeted area has been designed and experimentally tested. The instrument was constructed of Plexiglas with a density of 1.165 g/cm3 and has a “teeth” structure with a period of 2.5 mm. The design is based on a simple analytical model and detailed GEANT4 Monte Carlo simulations. In-beam test measurements were performed with a 500-MeV/u 12C beam at the Nuclotron facility of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research (JINR) in Dubna. The filter can be used as a static device positioned in front of patients undergoing carbon therapy.
