Measurement of mass attenuation coefficient, effective atomic number and electron density of thermoluminescent dosimetric compounds


Author(s): KA Odelami, IO Okunade, MY Onimisi

Abstract: Photon mass attenuation coefficients of some thermo luminescent (TLD) compounds, such as , were determined at 59.5-1332kev in a Gamma ray transmission set up using a NaI (TI) detector biased to a high voltage. The attenuation coefficient data were then used to compute the effective atomic number and the electron density of TLD compounds in photon energy range 51.5-1332.5 keV emitted by radioactive sources 241Am, 133Ba, 57Co 137Cs, 54Mn, and 60Co. The values of effective atomic numbers and electron densities of TLD compounds were in agreement with the other available data at energies of interest.
