First measurements with a prototype ionization chamber are described to be applied in online monitoring of modulated fields in radiation therapy. The liquids isooctane, isononane (TMP) and tetramethylsilane (TMS) are used in a high purity grade in order to realize high current signals for electronic read-out in parallel at frequencies exceeding 10 Hz. Signals of more than a factor 4 with respect to isooctane, analysis grade, are obtained. With an electrode structure of 400 pads, a uniformity in efficiency within 1.2% has been measured. The penumbra of a multileaf collimator could be resolved. Theoretical examination verifies that the free electrons in the liquids cause higher signals when the measured currents are compared with expectation for ion transport only.
