Abstract : Results obtained with true photon spectra showed that shields made of polyethylene and lead were more effective than lead shields of equivalent surface density. The laminated shield was the best of the three combination shields. It was shown experimentally that it was not necessary to convert pulse-height data into photon spectra in order to obtain relative dose rates from various shields; consequently differential pulse-height analysis can be a powerful tool for shielding research.
