Comparative Study of attenuation properties of some ternary borate glass systems
Some borate based systems doped with sodium, zinc and lead are chosen to study gamma ray mass attenuation properties. Different parameters like mass attenuation, half value layer and mean free path have been analyzed at different photon energies. The values of molar volume have been estimated from density values to get idea regarding the compactness of the network structure. XCOM computer software has been employed to estimate mass attenuation coefficient at various energies. Further the values of HVL for the studied systems are compared with standard radiation shielding materials like concrete.
