X-rays , also known as X-radiation , refers to electromagnetic radiation no rest mass, no charge of high energies. X-rays are high-energy photons with short wavelengths and thus very high frequency. The radiation frequency is key parameter of all photons, because it determines the energy of a photon.
The Continuous X-Ray Spectrum
X-rays , also known as X-radiation , refers to electromagnetic radiation no rest mass, no charge of high energies. X-rays are high-energy photons with short wavelengths and thus very high frequency. The radiation frequency is key parameter of all photons, because it determines the energy of a photon. Photons are categorized according to the energies from low-energy radio waves and infrared radiation, through visible light, to high-energy X-rays and gamma rays.
Most X-rays have a wavelength ranging from 0. X-ray wavelengths are shorter than those of UV rays and typically longer than those of gamma rays. For X-rays generated by X-ray tube, the part of energy that is transformed into radiation varies from zero up to the maximum energy of the electron when it hits the anode. The maximum energy of the produced X-ray photon is limited by the energy of the incident electron, which is equal to the voltage on the tube times the electron charge, so an kV tube cannot create X-rays with an energy greater than keV.
When the electrons hit the target, X-rays are created by two different atomic processes:. Internal conversion is an electromagnetic process, by which a nuclear excited state decays by the direct emission of one of its atomic electrons. Since the process leaves a vacancy in the electron energy level from which the electron came, the outer electrons of the atom cascade down to fill the lower atomic levels, and one or more characteristic X-rays are usually emitted. Sometimes X-ray may interact with another orbital electron, which may be ejected from the atom.
This second ejected electron is called an Auger electron. This is very similar to electron capture , but in case of electron capture, a nucleus changes its atomic number. As a result, the atom thus emits primary high energy electron, characteristic X-rays or secondary Auger electron, none of which originate in that nucleus. Main Menu.
X-Ray Spectrum — Characteristic and Continuous For X-rays generated by X-ray tube, the part of energy that is transformed into radiation varies from zero up to the maximum energy of the electron when it hits the anode. When the electrons hit the target, X-rays are created by two different atomic processes: Bremsstrahlung.
The name bremsstrahlung comes from the German. From classical theory, when a charged particle is accelerated or decelerated, it must radiate energy. The bremsstrahlung is one of possible interactions of light charged particles with matter especially with high atomic numbers.
These X-rays have a continuous spectrum. The intensity of the X-rays increases linearly with decreasing frequency, from zero at the energy of the incident electrons, the voltage on the X-ray tube.
Changing the material from which the target in the tube is made has no effect on the spectrum of this continuous radiation. If we were to switch from a molybdenum target to a copper target, for example, all features of the x-ray spectrum would change except the cutoff wavelength.
Characteristic X-ray emission. If the electron has enough energy it can knock an orbital electron out of the inner electron shell of a metal atom. As a result, sharp intensity peaks appear in the spectrum at wavelengths that are a characteristic of the material from which the anode target is made. The frequencies of the characteristic X-rays can be predicted from the Bohr model. Characteristic X-rays and Internal Conversion. Internal conversion followed by Auger electron emission.

Characteristic X-rays are emitted when outer- shell electrons fill a vacancy in the inner shell of an atom , releasing X-rays in a pattern that is "characteristic" to each element. Characteristic X-rays were discovered by Charles Glover Barkla in ,  who later won the Nobel Prize in Physics for his discovery in Characteristic X-rays are produced when an element is bombarded with high-energy particles, which can be photons, electrons or ions such as protons. When the incident particle strikes a bound electron the target electron in an atom, the target electron is ejected from the inner shell of the atom. After the electron has been ejected, the atom is left with a vacant energy level , also known as a core hole. Outer-shell electrons then fall into the inner shell, emitting quantized photons with an energy level equivalent to the energy difference between the higher and lower states. Each element has a unique set of energy levels, and thus the transition from higher to lower energy levels produces X-rays with frequencies that are characteristic to each element.
Bremsstrahlung, for example, accounts for continuous X-ray spectra— i. In generating bremsstrahlung, some electrons beamed at a metal target in an X-ray tube are brought to rest by one head-on collision with a nucleus and thereby have all their energy of motion converted at once into radiation of maximum energy. Other electrons from the same incident beam come to rest after being deflected many times by the positively charged nuclei. Each deflection gives rise to a pulse of electromagnetic energy, or photon , of less than maximum energy. Internal bremsstrahlung arises in the radioactive disintegration process of beta decay , which consists of the production and emission of electrons or positrons, positive electrons by unstable atomic nuclei or the capture by nuclei of one of their own orbiting electrons.
It has long been known that the x-rays emitted from an x-ray tube contain radiation characteristic of the material of the x-ray target superimposed upon a continuous spectrum. As early as Winkelmann and Straubel had noticed a scattered radiation which was characteristic of fluor spar; and later the characteristic x-rays scattered by different elements were studied systematically in a series of classic researches by Barkla. However, the actual separation of different wave-lengths into a spectrum was not possible until Friedrich , Knipping and Laue showed that crystals act as three dimensional diffraction gratings. Proceeding rapidly on the basis of this discovery W. Bragg and W.
X-ray spectra - continuous and characteristic X-ray spectra. The spectrum from an X-ray tube contains two distinct parts :. It consists of radiations of all possible wavelengths, from a certain lower limit to higher values continuously, as in the case of visible light.
Each type of atom or element has its own characteristic electromagnetic spectrum. In this section, we explore characteristic x rays and some of their important applications. We have previously discussed x rays as a part of the electromagnetic spectrum in Photon Energies and the Electromagnetic Spectrum.
Извини, Сью, я пошутил. Сьюзан быстро проскочила мимо него и вышла из комнаты. Проходя вдоль стеклянной стены, она ощутила на себе сверлящий взгляд Хейла. Сьюзан пришлось сделать крюк, притворившись, что она направляется в туалет.
Когда его обвиняли в фаворитизме, он в ответ говорил чистую правду: Сьюзан Флетчер - один из самых способных новых сотрудников, которых он принял на работу. Это заявление не оставляло места обвинениям в сексуальном домогательстве, однако как-то один из старших криптографов по глупости решил проверить справедливость слов шефа. Однажды, в первый год своей работы в агентстве, Сьюзан заглянула в комнату новых криптографов за какими-то бумагами. Уже направляясь к двери, она увидела свое фото на доске объявлений и едва не лишилась чувств.
Существовал только один разумный путь - выключить. Чатрукьян знал и то, что выключить ТРАНСТЕКСТ можно двумя способами.
