Abstract:
We make simple estimates of the attenuation of the 60 keV gamma rays from Am241 in the volume of LAr contained in the detector chamber planned for the Xe doping experiment in Luke (MTS). We also estimate the attenuation in the thin PTFE wall that shields the 5 MeV alphas from the Am241 source.
