AbstractThree samples of special lead glass are suggested for radiation protection and radiation shielding. Each one of these samles consist of seven oxides (Lead Oxide, Silicon Oxide, Barium Oxide, Sodium Oxide, Calcium Oxide, Aluminum Oxide and Cerium Oxide) with different weight ratio for each sample.
The mass attenuation coefficient for these samples was theoretically calculated according to Bragg additivity rule for two energies of gamma rays (0.66 and 1.25MeV). The sample which gave higher attenuation coefficient was experimentally manufactured and its mass attenuation coefficient was experimentally measured using (137Cs and 60 Co) and G. M. counter. The results obtained was compared with the mass attenuation coefficient of standard lead glass.
