In the present work, Rayleigh to Compton scattering intensity ratio method is used to determine the effective atomic number of binary alloys. The experiment is performed with various elements (13 ≤ Z ≤ 79) using HPGe solid-state detector placed at 50° relative to incident beam of 279 keV gamma photons. The intensity ratio under Rayleigh to Compton scattered peaks is plotted as a function of atomic number and fitted with a curve. From this calibration curve, the effective atomic number of the brass is determined. Copyright © 2006 Asian Publication Corporation.
