Abstract

As it is known, lead is a toxic material, although it is used in shielding material. To develop alternative materials that can be used in radiation shielding, the effect of MoO2 additives on the mass absorption properties of PbO was investigated. 662 keV, 1173 keV, and 1332 keV gamma energies were used in the study. Radiation absorption properties of materials taken with the XCOM database and GATE simulation programs at each energy value are given comparatively. By using the obtained mass attenuation coefficient, mean free path, half-value thickness, and linear attenuation coefficients were calculated.
