Abstract

Non destructive techniques of analyzing the samples play a crucial role in understanding the properties of materials without hampering their pristine form, archaeologically important samples are one such samples. Gamma ray interaction studies provide a handy non destructive technique to probe the material. In such interaction studies photon attenuation coefficient is a very important parameter. In the present work we have determined the mass attenuation coefficient (μ/ρ) of black stone procured form the quarries of Mysore region by carving them into coins of uniform thickness using a 133 Ba gamma source by employing a high resolution high pure germanium detector. The composition of the sample is determined using Energy dispersive X ray spectroscopy (EDS) which have been used to obtain the μ/ρ value from WinXcom software.
