Experiment to Determine the Absorption Coefficient of Gamma Rays as a Function of Energy.
Ouseph, P. J.; And Others
American Journal of Physics, v50 n3 p275-76 Mar 1982
Simpler than x-ray diffractometer experiments, the experiment described illustrates certain concepts regarding the interaction of electromagnetic rays with matter such as the exponential decrease in the intensity with absorber thickness, variation of the coefficient of absorption with energy, and the effect of the K-absorption edge on the absorption coefficient.
