Forthcoming articles have been peer-reviewed and accepted for publication but are pending final changes, are not yet published and may not appear here in their final order of publication until they are assigned to issues. Therefore, the content conforms to our standards but the presentation (e.g. typesetting and proof-reading) is not necessarily up to the Inderscience standard. Additionally, titles, authors, abstracts and keywords may change before publication. Articles will not be published until the final proofs are validated by their authors.

Forthcoming articles must be purchased for the purposes of research, teaching and private study only. These articles can be cited using the expression "in press". For example: Smith, J. (in press). Article Title. Journal Title.

Online First articles are published online here, before they appear in a journal issue. Online First articles are fully citeable, complete with a DOI. They can be cited, read, and downloaded. Online First articles are published as Open Access (OA) articles to make the latest research available as early as possible.

Open AccessArticles marked with this Open Access icon are Online First articles. They are freely available and openly accessible to all without any restriction except the ones stated in their respective CC licenses.

    Abstract: This study aimed to examine the radiation attenuation of three perovskite samples, La0.7Sr0.3FeO3, La0.7Sr0.3MnO3, and, La0.7Sr0.3CoO3 (LSF, LSM, and LSC) using Monte Carlo (MC) simulation code and Phy-X/PSD (PhyX) software in the energy range of 0.015-15 MeV. Gamma and neutron attenuation parameters [e.g., mass attenuation coefficient (MAC), half value layer (HVL), effective atomic number (Zeff), equivalent atomic number (Zeq), etc.] are calculated. The LAC values varied from 777.363 to 0.847 cm1 for LSF, 709.033 to 0.0841 cm1 for LSM, and 794.686 to 0.0874 cm1 for LSC. The HVL values grew from 0.001 to 0.819 cm1, 0.824 cm1, and 0.793 cm1 for LSF, LSM, and LSC respectively. Also, the fast neutron removal cross-section (FNRCS) values were 0.109, 0.108, and 0.108 cm1 for LSF, LSM, and LSC, respectively. As a result, among the testes compositions, the LSC sample can be regarded as a better material for applications requiring radiation attenuations, such as nuclear security and patient safety in radiation-heavy environments.
