Differences in reported backscatter factors,BSF, for low energy X-rays: A literature study
1991 (English)Report (Other academic)
This work was ini tia ted by the large discrepancy in published values of the backscatter factor (BSF) as function of the half value layer (HVL) that exists in a new code of practice (IAEA, 1987) compared to the earlier, general ly used code (BJR, 1983). Change to the IAEA-code changes reported values of absorbed dose with up to 10%. These deviations apply for X-rays with HVL < 8 mm Al.
