Abstract

Mass attenuation coefficients, effective atomic numbers and effective electron densities have been determined experimentally for the glass system xCaO . (0.3-x)SrO . 0.7B(2)O(3) at photon energies 511, 662, 1173, and 1332KeV. The results are compared with theoretical calculations. In addition, the molar volume of the glasses has been derived from density measurements, and the excess volume has been determined as a function of composition. The reported data should be useful for potential applications of these glasses in radiation shielding. (C) 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
