glass ball SRD 126 X-Ray Attenuation and Absorption for Materials of Dosimetric Interest (Web, free access)  Keywords for Database
Tables and graphs of the photon mass attenuation coefficient and the mass energy-absorption coefficient are presented for all of the elements Z = 1 to 92, and for 48 compounds and mixtures of radiological interest. The tables cover energies of the photon (x-ray, gamma ray, bremsstrahlung) from 1 keV to 20 MeV.
glass ball SRD 66 X-Ray Form Factor, Attenuation and Scattering Tables (Web, free access)  Keywords for Database
This database collects tables and graphs of the form factors, the photoabsorption cross section, and the total attenuation coefficient for any element (Z <= 92).
glass ball SRD 8 XCOM: Photon Cross Sections Database (Web, free access)  Keywords for Database
A web database is provided which can be used to calculate photon cross sections for scattering, photoelectric absorption and pair production, as well as total attenuation coefficients, for any element, compound or mixture (Z <= 100) at energies from 1 keV to 100 GeV.
