In this study, the X-ray and gamma attenuation characteristics and optical properties of a synthesized tellurite-phosphate-sodium oxide glass system with a composition of (85 - x)TeO-10PO-xNaO mol% (where x = 15, 20, and 25) were evaluated. The glass systems we re fabricated by our research group using quenching melt fabrication. The shielding parameters of as-synthesized systems, such as the mass attenuation coefficient (MAC), linear attenuation coefficient (LAC), effective atomic number (Z), half-value layer (HVL), tenth value layer (TVL), mean free path (MFP), and effective electron density (N) in a wide energy range between 15 keV and 15 MeV, were estimated using well-known PHY-X/PSD software and recently developed MIKE software.
