Abstract

The paper analyses the ratio between the number of Compton-scattered quanta excited in elements of radiation protection coatings by isotope Am-241 and the number of fluorescence quanta excited in in the same elements, taking into account the fluorescence yield coefficient and the distance between the energy of primary radiation quanta (60 keV) and the energy of absorption K-edge. The paper shows that the number of scattered quanta exceeds the number of fluorescent quanta from K-level in all elements. The obtained values define the ratio of scattered and fluorescent quanta in any radiation protection coatings with a known chemical composition.
