عنوان مقاله [English]
In this study, we have evaluated gamma ray and neutron shielding of platinum carbon nanotubes using Geant 4 Monte Carlo simulator in the photon energy range of 15-0.015 (𝑀𝑒𝑉) .
We have calculated the mass attenuation coefficient, the half value layer, the tenth value layer, the mean free path and the ratio of the linear attenuation coefficient of Compton scattering to the total linear attenuation coefficient and the remove cross section of fast neutrons, which is necessary to check the performance of a shield for these parameters. XMuDat program was used to validate the data. The Geant4 results are in good agreement with the values obtained from the XMuDat program. We have also analyzed them. Finally, the results obtained for nanomaterials have been depicted in suitable forms. At the end, suggestions for using these nanomaterials in places where there are restrictions on weight, mechanical stability and strength are given .
