Measurement and Detection of X-Rays
In any application or study of X-rays some method of detection of the X-ray beam will be required. It may be sufficient to detect the existence of a beam or to record its position relative to the incident beam or to some other reference. In such cases qualitative methods are acceptable. On the other hand it may be necessary to know the intensity of the beam either relative to the intensity of other beams or in absolute measure, or again it may be necessary to know the total energy received in the form of X-rays by some object. In such cases, of course, quantitative methods are required.
