Lead-Titanate-Based Ceramics That Protect Against Gamma Radiation

Lead-Titanate-Based Ceramics That Protect Against Gamma Radiation A functional ceramic based on the lead titanates is synthesized and its radiation-protective characteristics are studied. The phase compositions of lead titanates synthesized with the use of different proportions for the initial components are compared and the component ratio is optimized to ensure that the resulting titanates of heavy metals have an acceptable phase composition.

Abstract

A functional ceramic based on the lead titanates is synthesized and its radiation-protective characteristics are studied. The phase compositions of lead titanates synthesized with the use of different proportions for the initial components are compared and the component ratio is optimized to ensure that the resulting titanates of heavy metals have an acceptable phase composition. The absorption of gamma radiation by synthesized lead titanate is studied and this product is compared to traditional protective materials. It is shown that in terms of its protective characteristics lead titanate is surpassed only by pure lead and barite concrete.
