Cross-section and Attenuation Coefficient

Tag: Physicsadmin @ 5:15 pm

The quantity imaged by x-ray systems is the linear attenuation coefficient, which in turn depends on the cross-sections of x-ray interactions with matter. Here I will discuss the physics of these quantities and will also emphasize the implications for extracting the energy-dependent information.

The main theme of this blog is energy selective x-ray images. My approach is to combine theoretical and mathematical topics with code to implement them and examples of their use.

A free ebook on these topics is available. To get it, email me at the address on the contact page

I have turned off the comments because of spam. If you want to comment, send an email at the Contact.

Here is a map of some topics that I want to cover. I made it using ithoughtsHD on an Ipad, Freemind and Seamonkey on the PC (more on those in later posts)
