The largest uncertainty on the physical dose deposition in hadrontherapy is due to ion’s nuclear interaction through the traversed material. Today the simulation codes are not able to reproduce the fragmentation process with the required precision. To improve the knowledge of 12C fragmentation at intermediate energies we have measured at the Laboratori Nazionali del Sud in Catania production cross sections, energy spectra and angular distributions of fragments produced in 12C fragmentation on thin 12C target, at 62A MeV.
