The choice of the proper converter i.e., bremsstrahlung target thickness and the proper converter material depends on both the experiment being performed and on the backgrounds. Any choice will be a compromise between the factors listed below. In many cases, some relatively obvious alternatives will have both positive and negative features. It is quite likely that no decisive feature will emerge, and that one alternative will be chosen arbitrarily in preference to spending the excessive times probably necessary to find the optimum condition experimentally.
