Barium Sulfate Epoxy Mixture Effects on Attenuation of Short Wavelength Radiation

  title={Barium Sulfate Epoxy Mixture Effects on Attenuation of Short Wavelength Radiation},
  author={Khalid M. Omar and Khaled Abdu Al-Khazaleh and Saida Saadi},
Introduction There are three factors which are used to control the amount or dose of radiation received from a source. The radiation exposure can be managed by a combination of these factors; • Time: reducing the time of an exposure leads to reduction of the effective doses proportionally. • Shielding: refers to a mass of absorbing material placed around a reactor or other radioactive source in order to reduce the radiation to safe humans [1]-[5]. Radiation protection is a very important field…

Total Absorption Gamma‐Ray Spectrometers Utilizing Anticoincidence Shielding

Two total absorption gamma‐ray spectrometers utilizing anticoincidence shielding are described. One of these consists of a 5‐in. diam by 5‐in. thick NaI(Tl) well crystal enclosed in a 26‐in. diam by

A Compton scattering spectrometer for determining X-ray photon energy spectra.

Comparison between the spectrum obtained using a Compton spectrometer and unfolded with the reconstruction and the spectrum measured directly in the primary beam shows very good agreement even though relatively simple reconstruction algorithms have been used.
