Abstract

Abstract The mass attenuation coefficient of β-particles in aluminum is determined for five different β-emitters covering the end-point energy range from 0.4 to 2.3 MeV adopting two extreme geometries, namely the good geometry setup and the 2 π geometry setup. The experimental and estimated values obtained using these geometries are compared with those values obtained using an intermediate geometry by Nathuram et al., (1) and Gleason et al. (5) The effect of geometry on μ/ϱ values is discussed.
