Title: Gamma ray shielding and structural properties of Bi{sub 2}O{sub 3}−PbO−B{sub 2}O{sub 3}−V{sub 2}O{sub 5} glass system

The present work has been undertaken to evaluate the applicability of Bi{sub 2}O{sub 3}−PbO−B{sub 2}O{sub 3}−V{sub 2}O{sub 5} glass system as gamma ray shielding material. Gamma ray mass attenuation coefficient has been determined theoretically using WinXcom computer software developed by National Institute of Standards and Technology. A meaningful comparison of their radiation shielding properties has been made in terms of their half value layer parameter with standard radiation shielding concrete 'barite'. Structural properties of the prepared glass system have been investigated in terms of XRD and FTIR techniques in order to check the possibility of their commercial utility as alternate to conventional concrete for gamma ray shielding applications.
