Phosphor Scanner For Imaging X-Ray Diffraction
Author and Affiliation:
Carter, Daniel C.(NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, AL.)
Hecht, Diana L.(NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, AL.)
Witherow, William K.(NASA Marshall Space Flight Center, Huntsville, AL.)
Abstract: Improved optoelectronic scanning apparatus generates digitized image of x-ray image recorded in phosphor. Scanning fiber-optic probe supplies laser light stimulating luminescence in areas of phosphor exposed to x rays. Luminescence passes through probe and fiber to integrating sphere and photomultiplier. Sensitivity and resolution exceed previously available scanners. Intended for use in x-ray crystallography, medical radiography, and molecular biology.
