    A silicon detector with a longitudinal silicon wafer has been developed. x-Ray spectra at the K-absorption edges of Au, Pb, and Bi are used to measure its energy resolution. The results are compared with measurements based on x-rays from a 241Am gamma-ray source. The dependence of the energy...

    The generalized method of Backus and Gilbert (BG) is described and applied to the inverse problem of obtaining the spectrum from a five-channel, filtered array of x-ray detectors. This diagnostic is routinely fielded on the Z facility at Sandia National Laboratories to study soft x-ray photons...

    We fabricated a superconducting single X-ray photon detector based on W0.8Si0.2, and we characterized its basic detection performance for keV-photons at different temperatures. The detector has a critical temperature of 4.97 K, and it is able to be operated up to 4.8 K, just below the critical...

    Using the full-potential, linearized, augmented plane wave method, we have investigated the magnetic properties of body-centered-cubic Mn(2 monolayers [ML])/Fe(001), Mn(2 ML)/ Ag(1 ML)/Fe(001), and Mn(2 ML)/Ag(2 ML)/Fe(001). We find that the Mn overlayers have a layered antiferromagnetic ground...

    Several Active Galactic Nuclei (AGNs) have been reported to harbor fast outflows exceeding 10,000 km s, which are detected mostly in their low-resolution CCD X-ray spectra. Only few, however, were detected with high-resolution grating spectrometers. Most of the grating detected outflows have...

    theoretical study is presented, with an extended single impurity Anderson model, for the crystal field effect on the X-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) spectra at L edges of mixed-valence Ce and Yb compounds in high magnetic fields. The crystal field acting on the 4 f electrons is assumed...
