Abstract:

Measurements have been made of the scintillation efficiency of a NaIT crystal for diffracted X rays in the energy range from 24.7 to 46.5 keV in 1 keV increments. The maximum deviation from linearity occurred in the region from 33 to 35 keV. The nonproportional response of NaIT to electrons in the regions from 0.051 to 45.426 keV was then derived using a model of the energetic electron array produced in the crystal by the incident diffracted X rays.
