Article
Full-text available
The natural radioactivity in Ma′an soil has been estimated in order to complete the survey of the environmental radioactivity in Jordan areas and evaluate the radiological health hazard. Soils were collected from five main distributed sites. XRF spectrometry used to specify the chemical composition of the soils. Gross alpha and gross beta activity...

This study is undertaken to determine the activity concentration of 226 Ra, 232 Th, 40 K and radon emanation coefficient of some superficial materials commonly used in dwelling for interior decoration. Eighty samples of four different materials were collected from local suppliers and analyzed, employing high resolution gamma-ray spectroscopy. Mean...
Article
Full-text available
The shielding properties of three different construction styles, and building materials, commonly used in Jordan, were evaluated using parameters such as attenuation coefficients, equivalent atomic number, penetration depth and energy buildup factor. Geometric progression (GP) method was used to calculate gamma-ray energy buildup factors of limesto...
Article
Full-text available
Using Geant4 toolkit, the differential cross-section and the atomic form factor for coherent scattering of 25.2 keV photons in some tissue-equivalent compounds at 90º were calculated. The results gave good agreement with those calculated theoretically.
Article
This study presents the photon shielding factors, viz, the linear attenuation (LAC) and mass (MAC) attenuation coefficients, half-value layer (HVL), transmission factor TF, and effective atomic number Zeff of xCo2O3-(100 − x)[80 TeO2–19Li2O–1ZrO2] glass–ceramic system (for 0 ≤ x ≤ 20 mol%) synthesized by the melt-quench method. The parameters were...
Article
This report presents the gamma-rays and neutron interacting parameters of the newly developed xCdO – 20PbO–10TeO2 – (69-x) B2O3–1CuO glass system with the view to applying them for nuclear protection uses. The glasses were coded as CdPTBCu1 – 4 representing molar concentration of CdO form 0–15%. The mass attenuation coefficient (MAC) of the glasses...
Article
The synthesis of alloys doped with a heavy element is proven to be a successful strategy to boost the shielding ability against ionizing radiation. In this paper, four compositions of Al-alloys doped with different weights of Pb are synthesised and studied for their physical features and nuclear radiation shielding characteristics. The produced sam...
Article
Full-text available
This research article focuses on the significant role of Tb2O3 content on the optical properties and radiation shielding performance of Ga2O3–B2O3–Al2O3–GeO2 glasses named as GBAGT1, GBAGT2, GBAGT3, and GBAGT4 for Tb2O3 of 14, 18, 22 and 25 mol%, respectively. The findings of the optical study indicate that the optical dielectric constant of the pr...
Article
The noted Design of a new and effective radiation shielding material is a growing demand to reduce the harmful effects of ionizing radiation in medical and nuclear applications. In this research article, three silver nitrate (AgNO3) doped PVA polymers were reported to serve as potential shielding materials against gamma ray. These polymers were tes...
Article
Full-text available
The influence MgCl2 on the nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) signal of radiation-induced polymerization of N-(Hydroxymethyl)acrylamide polymer gel (NHMAGAT) dosimeter was investigated in this study. The gels were irradiated via a 6 MV X-ray radiation beam (produced by medical linear accelerator) with doses ranging from 0.25 to 5 Gy. NMR spectroscopy...
Article
During superficial radiotherapy, and for cases where bony structures lie relatively close to the surface behind the tissue region being treated, perturbations to delivered dose are expected due to the change in tissue scattering conditions and the value of buildup factor near the tissue/bone interface. The absorbed dose distribution within bone, mu...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Exposure build-up factors (EBF) have been calculated for some biological matrices including nine different tissues in the energy region 0.05 – 3 MeV up to a penetration depth of 40 mfp (mean free path). Geometric progression (G-P) fitting approximation has been used to calculate EBF of adipose, skin, muscle, brain, blood, lung, soft, compact bone,...

Thirty-two samples of seven types of building materials were collected from different locations (Manufacturers) of Amman-Province, Jordan, and analyzed using a gamma spectroscopy system. From the results, the values observed in the specific activity concentrations of ²²⁶Ra, ²³²Th, and ⁴⁰K range from 1.88 Bq/kg (bricks) to 69.8 Bq/kg (granite) for ²...
Article
The mass attenuation coefficients (μ/ρ) of a natural material, i.e., olive peat, were measured at photon energies of 0.059, 0.356, 0.662, 1.17, and 1.332 MeV and compared with those of concrete and Pb. The experimental samples were irradiated with 214Am, 133Ba, 137Cs, and 60Co point sources using a transmission arrangement. The olive peat samples w...

The radiological risk from building stone interfaces in Jordanian houses was determined depending on gamma ray spectrometric techniques. Building stone samples collected from seven types mostly used in Jordanian houses have been analyzed for the naturally occurring radioactive radionuclides. The mean specific activities of 238 U, 232 Th and 40 K we...

The aim of this study was the determination of Po-210 in cigarettes consumed in different parts of Jordan and determination of Po-210 in the four most frequently smoked brands (mixed brand cigarettes, cigarette brand-Gold Star, tobacco wrapped paper-Hishi and tobacco moassel). Po-210 in tobacco displays concentrations ranging from 4 to 29 mBq/g, de...
