Potential analysis of concrete as neutron radiation shielding material for bnct facility

Abstract

PSTA-BATAN has barite concretes to be analyzed by the attenuation coefficient to find out its potential as neutron radiation shielding material for BNCT development. The experiment used PuBe as the neutron source and HPGe as the neutron detector. The result exhibitsed that barite concrete with 2.13 g.cm-1 of density has 0.0871 cm-1 of the coefficient of neutron attenuation so that barite concrete has potential as neutron radiation shielding material.
