Abstract

© 2022 ICE Publishing: All rights reserved.In radiation protection physics, development of alternative shielding materials to lead and lead-based materials is very popular nowadays, and thus, the present work aims to study the radiation-shielding parameters of a newly developed titanium dioxide (TiO2)-added hydroxyapatite composite material. The gamma-ray-shielding parameters were given in terms of the linear attenuation coefficient, half-value length, effective atomic number (Z eff) and effective electron density (N eff) for four different composites. The variations of these parameters with the titanium dioxide rate were also investigated.
