Abstract:

Results of calculations of the total integrated x-ray quantum bremsstrahlung emission transmitted through absorbers of aluminum, copper and carbon polyethylene are presented for a range of plasma temperatures and absorber thickness for both ideal detectors and for film. Such information is useful in obtaining values for the electron temperature in a plasma from measurements of the x-ray continuum emission. Author
