Gamma Ray Albedo Data Generated by the Invariant Embedding Method
The energy-and-angle dependent doubly differential γ-ray albedos for homogeneous semi-infinite medium have been calculated for water, ordinary concrete, soil, heavy concrete, iron, tin and lead. The procedure of calculation employed in the present paper is the invariant embedding method which is being developed to solve neutral particle transport problems in homogeneous one dimensional medium. The calculated γ-ray albedos are stored in the data base. One can easily obtain from this data base the various kinds of albedos (number, dose, energy, etc.) with a simple interface program. The accuracy of the calculated γ-ray albedos is ascertained by comparing with the Monte Carlo calculations (MCNP4A and EGS4).
