Effective Atomic Number and Kerma for Photon Energy Absorption of Organic Scintillators
An attempt has been made to calculate the effective atomic number and Kerma for photon energy absorption of organic scintillators in the energy region 1 keV to 20 MeV. We have chosen seven organic scintillators viz., anthracene, stilbene, naphthalene, p -terphenyl, PPO, butyl PBD and PBD. The Z PEA, eff and Kerma values are calculated by using mass-energy absorption coefficient from Hubbell and Seltzer. We also calculated Z PI, eff for total photon interaction with coherent scattering by using WinXCom and compared with the Z PEA, eff.
