Shippen, Alan and Joyce, Malcolm J. (2010) Profiling the depth of caesium-137 contamination in concrete via a relative linear attenuation model. Applied Radiation and Isotopes, 68 (4-5). pp. 631-634. ISSN 0969-8043Full text not available from this repository.
An application of the relative attenuation of X rays and γ rays for the measurement of depth of radioactive contamination in concrete and is described, based upon the photon energy spectrum of caesium-137. This has been tested on two bespoke phantoms with pressed/cast concrete and silica sand highlighting the potential for sub-millimetre depth resolution. This research highlights the importance of the ease of calibration, prior to application in the field, and improved knowledge of materials composition in legacy facilities.
