Abstract:

A Monte Carlo calculation of the energy spectrum emitted by a collimated, Co-60 source is reported. The collimator assumed is very similar to one currently being used in experimental shielding studies at the University of Illinois. Radiation emerging from the collimator is classified into 13 equal- length energy intervals between 0.1 and 1.4 MeV, and into 3 direction intervals for angles relative to the collimator axis between 0 and 90 deg. Comparisons are made with experimental and theoretical work reported by others.
