Chemical dosimeters, including PRESAGEŽ as used in optical CT, exhibit significant quenching effects in response to proton irradiation and this may limit their widespread uptake. This study performs careful measurements of the observed quenching of a recently developed variant of PRESAGEŽ in a 60 MeV proton beam and uses them to attempt an empirical correction of a simple superposition of two unmodulated beams.
