THOMAS transition in this distribution from a steeper slope to a constant smaller slope at larger radii. /Zm) (8) where Xm is the Molière length defined above. There is no simple derivation for the first term of this expression, but the second term, describing the radial "tail," must be related to the attenuation of photons near the Compton minimum. , 1985).

Is the angle with respect to the beam direction (degrees). a is the target-to-shield distance (meters). d is the shield thickness (meters). p is the shielding material density (kilograms per cubic meter). For clarity, p is shown explicitly in the two factors of the exponential, pd and μΐρ. 4 x 10"3 m2 kg -1 ). B is a photon dose buildup factor, dependent on energy and material. In this context the value is not significantly different from unity and this factor is omitted in the discussion that follows.

6σ(ρ). For materials commonly used in accelerator systems with Z higher than about 13, the distance within which hadronic cascade interactions occur is several times larger than for the electromagnetic cascade. To illustrate, a comparison of the radiation length for electrons and the nuclear collision length is shown in Table VI. For high-Z materials, to a good approximation, the energy transferred to the electromagnetic cascade by the hadronic cascade can be considered locally deposited, except for materials with Z lower than that of aluminum.
