Simulation of X-ray Spectra
This application is able to provide you with valuable preliminary information for designing or describing the radiation physics of an X-ray system.
How to use:
The first step is to select the basic parameters of the radiation source and calculate an initial spectrum. A new window will open in which you can add or remove X-ray absorbers depending on your specific interests or needs.
The tool itself is based on algorithms developed by John M. Boone et al. (University of California, Sacramento) and on X-ray attenuation data provided by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) at the U.S. Department of Commerce.
