We present a comparative study of the performance of elemental and compound solid state crystals of possible use in X-ray digital radiography. The general purpose EGS4 code was used to simulate photon-electron transport in the energy range 20 to 60 keV. The efficiency and the energy resolution, as a function of X-ray energy, are calculated and correlated to the different physical characteristics of the crystals considered.

Abstract

We present a comparative study of the performance of elemental and compound solid state crystals of possible use in X-ray digital radiography. The general purpose EGS4 code was used to simulate photon-electron transport in the energy range 20 to 60 keV. The efficiency and the energy resolution, as a function of X-ray energy, are calculated and correlated to the different physical characteristics of the crystals considered.
