ABSTRACT
X-ray induced fluorescence is used to measure the elemental densities of minority additives in a metal-halide arc contained inside a translucent ceramic envelope. A monochromatic x-ray beam from the Sector 1 Insertion Device beamline at the Advanced Photon Source is used to excite K-shell x-ray fluorescence in the constituents of a ceramic metal-halide arc lamp dosed with DyI[sub 3] and CsI. Fluorescence and scattered photons are collected by a cryogenic energy-resolving Ge detector. The high signal-to-noise spectra show strong fluorescence from Dy, Cs, and I, as well as elastic scattering from Hg. Radial distributions of the absolute elemental densities of Dy, Cs, and I are obtained. © 2001 American Institute of Physics.

    Theoretical calculation has shown that the spectrum of the Compton backscattering component in solar hard X-ray flares has a peak around 30 keV for a primary power-law source. Thus the superposition of the Compton backscattering component could cause a photon spectrum received at the Earth to be...

    All theories of x-ray based spectroscopies are based fundamentally on quantum electrodynamics (QED), which fully describes the interaction between the electromagnetic field and matter. Since there is no exact solution for the many-body QED Hamiltonian, approximations specific for each particular...

    Owing to advances in synchrotron sources and instrumentation for x-ray spectroscopy and scattering it is becoming feasible to probe directly the electronic states responsible for ferroelectricity. As an example we show that polarized XANES measurement proved that in PZN-PT the polarization of Nb...

    The combination of particle-induced X-ray emission (PIXE) and Rutherford backscattering (RBS) is particularly fruitful for the study of cultural heritage objects.
