Abstract

It is shown that the energy factor in the bremsstrahlung buildup increases more slowly than linearly with the layer thickness, tending asymptotically toward the buildup factor for a monoenergetic source with the energy at which the attenuation factor reaches its minimum value in the concentrated part of the spectrum.
