ABOUT THIS PRODUCT:
The polychromatic X-radiation that is emitted by an X-ray tube is filtered in terms of its energy with the aid of a monocrystal. The resulting monochromatic radiation is used as the primary radiation source for examining the absorption behavior of various metal foils of different thicknesses. Tasks:
• Determine the attenuation of the X-radiation by aluminum and zinc foils of different thicknesses and at two different wavelengths of the primary radiation.
• Determine the mass absorption coefficient μ / ρ for aluminum, zinc and tin absorbers of constant thickness as a function of the wavelength of the primary radiation. Prove the validity of μ /ρ = f (λ3 ) in a graphical manner.
• Determine the absorption coefficients µ for copper and nickel as a function of the wavelength of the primary radiation. Determine the energy values of the corresponding K shells based on the graphical representation. Prove the validity of μ /ρ = f (λ3 ). What You Can Learn About:
• Characteristic radiation
• Bragg scattering
• Law of absorption
• Mass absorption coefficient
• Absorption edge
