The gamma quanta attenuation studies have been carried out to determine mass attenuation coefficients of 7041, 7075 and 7095 wrought aluminum alloys. The temperature dependence of linear attenuation coefficient, density and thermal expansion of these wrought aluminum alloys in the temperature range 300 K - 850 K have been reported. The measurements were done by using a gamma ray densitometer designed and fabricated in our laboratory. The data on variation of density and linear thermal expansion with temperature have been represented by linear equations. Volume thermal expansion coefficients have been reported.
In the present work, ZnO·PbO·B2O3 glasses are prepared to be used as g-ray shielding materials. The attenuation properties of these glasses with different concentrations of PbO (20% - 70%) have been investigated at photon energies 662, 1173, 1332 and 2614 keV. The optical absorption spectra of some glass samples have been measured from 200 to 1100 nm before and after g-ray irradiation. The analyses of these spectra have been interpreted and discussed.
