Abstract

Mass attenuation coefficients of some boron compounds (H3BO3, Na2B4O7 and B3Al2O3) and the trommel sieve waste (TSW) have been measured by using an extremely narrow collimated-beam transmission method in the energy range 15.746-40.930 keV. The characteristic Kalpha and Kbeta X-rays of Zr, Mo, Ag, In, Sb, Ba and Pr passed through H3BO3, Na2B4O7, B3Al2O3 and TSW were detected with a high-resolution Si(Li) detector. The measured values are compared with the theoretical ones obtained using the WINXCOM. (C) 2003 Elsevier Science Ltd. All rights reserved.
