559938 X-Ray Energy Detector


X-Ray Energy Detector

The energy detector is designed for use with the x-ray apparatus (554 801), recording energy separated measurements within the x-ray spectrum. The detector expands the range of experiments possible in quantum and atomic physics, and will also perform non-destructive material analysis.

Description Topics:

Recording the spectrum of an x-ray Quantitative investigation of the compton effect X-ray florescence and recording florescence spectra of different elements Verification of Moseleys law using florescence spectra Non-destructive material analysis
