Thermal Expansion of Alkali Halides by Gamma-Ray Attenuation
The temperature dependence of linear attenuation coefficient, density and thermal expansion of KCl, KBr, KF and KI has been studied by γ-ray attenuation technique in the temperature range 300 K–1000 K. The γ-ray attenuation studies have been carried out using a γ-ray densitometer. The linear attenuation coefficients (μl ) of KCl, KBr, KF and KI as a function of temperature have been determined using Cs (0.66 MeV), Am (0.595 MeV), CO (1.173 MeV and 1.332 MeV) different energies of γ-beam. The variation of density and coefficients of temperature dependence of density have been reported. The variation of thermal expansion of these alkali halides studied in the present work has been compared with the results obtained from other methods. The variation in these thermophysical properties have been represented by linear equations. Volume thermal expansion coefficients and mass attenuation coefficients (μ) of these compounds for the different energies have been reported and compared with data calculated by other method.
