Linear attenuation coefficient and mean free path in the energy range of 0.1MeV to 1.5MeV
The linear attenuation coefficient has an essential role in the estimation of absorbed dose use in the medical and radiation dosimetry. In this paper the linear attenuation coefficient and mean free path for the low density elements of Sulfur, Silicon, Sodium and Carbon in the energy range from 100keV to 1500keV were measured. The transmitted intensity of photons emitted by radioactive isotopes of 133Ba, 22Na, 137Cs, 54Mn and 60Co measured using the NaI(Tl) scintillation detector and results obtained are in good agreement with the values reported in the literatures.
