X-rays are high-energy electromagnetic radiation. They have energies ranging from about 200 eV to 1 MeV, which puts them between γ-rays and ultraviolet (UV) radiation in the electromagnetic spectrum. It is important to realize that there are no sharp boundaries between different regions of the electromagnetic spectrum and that the assigned boundaries between regions are arbitrary.
