Abstract : The spectrum of X and gamma radiation backscattered from a scattering medium is a function of the chemical composition of that medium. Photon backscatter has therefore received considerable attention over the past several years (in both applied research and advanced development) as a possible technique for detecting shallowly buried, nonmetallic mines. This report concerns one aspect of this investigation.
