Empirical relation between energy and angular deviation of muons transmitted through thick slabs

sengupta mitra, mausumi


To facilitate detection of materials of high atomic number buried inside materials of low atomic number using cosmic ray muons, Monte Carlo simulations have been carried out and an empirical relation has been developed to correlate energy with the most probable angular deviation of transported muons through slabs of different materials. This empirical relation describes the correlation between the energy distribution and the distribution of angular deviation of muons passing through slabs of different materials and of different thickness, and is expected to be useful in the field of cosmic ray muon radiography.
