Gamma mass attenuation coefficient and linear attenuation coefficient for various wood slabs are measured using gamma attenuation method. In the present work, 137Cs source (gamma energy) NaI (Tl) scintillation detector and ST360 counter are used. The various wood slabs can be used as shielding material for radioactive substances. The experimental results of linear and mass attenuation coefficients for seven absorbers are compared. These absorbers can be used as shield material for radioactive substances in shield design.
