Determination Of 4.5 Mev Neutron Removal Cross Section For Some Shielding Materials


AbstractOn the basis of the fast neutron attenuation, the total removal cross section at some shielding materialssuch as Al,Fe,Cu, and Pb and the compounds paraffin wax, polyethylene, borated polyethylene andconcrete have been determined,using neutrons with energy 4.5 MeV emitted from241Am-Be neutronsource.
