X-Ray-Sensitive Camera

Photonics Spectra
Feb 2011
X-Scan Imaging Corp.Request Info
 
X-Scan Imaging Corp. has announced a new member of its family of high-energy line-scan cameras. Designed for imaging ultrahigh-energy x-ray and gamma ray applications at levels to 15 MeV, the XMH8800 series cameras combine scintillation (for converting high-energy photons to visible light) and fiber optics (for subsequently conveying the visible light to an off-axis CMOS diode array detector). A lead or tungsten body shields the diode array and integrated electronics, ensuring long-life reliability under extreme radiation conditions. The cameras’ high-energy accelerators and detectors image large, dense objects, such as metal castings, and steel objects from 4 to 12 in. thick. Other applications include radiography and nondestructive test imaging.

GLOSSARY
gamma ray
The spontaneous emittance of electromagnetic radiation by the nucleus of certain radioactive elements during their quantum transition between two energy levels. The radiation emitted has a wavelength between 10-8 and 10-10 cm.
linear array
A solid-state video detector consisting of a single row of light-sensitive semiconductor devices, used in linear-array cameras.
radiography
A photographic process using x-ray radiation or the g-rays of radioactive materials.
scintillation
1. The variation in intensity of a light beam as it travels through the atmosphere. 2. In radiation physics, a light flash formed by an ionizing event in a phosphor; a flash formed when rapidly traveling particles, such as alpha particles, travel through matter. 3. In lasers, rapid changes in the levels of irradiance in the cross section of a laser beam.
