The interacted characteristically study of alpha, proton, neutron, and gamma radiation against Gd2O3-Na2O-Al2O3-P2O5 glass system doped with Dy3+: Theoretical investigation
Keywords:Radiation shielding glass, Fast neutron removal cross-sections, SRIM simulation , Phy-X
The radiation shielding properties and fast neutron removal cross-sections of Na2O-Gd2O3-Al2O3-P2O5 glass system doped with Dy3+ were calculated by theoretical approach using the Phy-X program. However, charged particles were simulated via SRIM coding. The result found that density and molar volume of the samples increase with increasing of Dy2O3 concentrations. For radiation shielding properties, increasing Dy2O3 concentrations impact with the mass attenuation coefficient (MAC), effective atomic number (Zeff), and effective electron density (Neff) and also corresponds to the gamma energy ranges. In other hands, increasing density and the MAC are not result directly with neutron cross-sections. For charged particles, the total mass stopping power (TMSP) of both particle as proton and alpha particles depend on the medium that charged particles traversed and also rely on number of ions.
