Abstract:

A discussion of x-ray dose enhancement at material interfaces is presented including definition, problem identification and worst-case estimation, prediction techniques, and analysis of dose enhancement characteristics. Empirical, analytical, and Monte Carlo prediction techniques are discussed. Dose enhancement calculations for various interface configurations, continuous x-ray sources, and thin high-Z layers are presented. Author
