Abstract

The transmission and absorption of high-energy bremsstrahlung through materials was studied by a photographic method. The dependences of the depth distribution of absorbed dose (DDAD) and of the absorbed energy (DDAE) on the maximum bremsstrahlung energy, the atomic number of the absorber, and the irradiation conditions are reported and discussed. On the basis of the results, a method is proposed for constructing the DDAD and DDAE curves for atomic numbers and maximum bremsstrahlung energies in the ranges studied. A systematic experimental check of this method for constructing the DDAD and DDAE curves for iron shows the method to be highly accurate.
