Abstract:

It has been known for some time that certain chemicals luminesce when impinged by X- or gamma rays. The specific color and brightness of the luminescence thus produced is known to be a function of the chemical itself, the wavelength of the impinging rays, and the flux density of the impinging rays. Because of the inherent problems associated with reading conventional X-rays, it would be of great value to take advantage of the color luminescence phenomenon in producing the film images to be read during structural assessment. This memorandum is disseminated to report on the current state-of-the-art in producing color X-ray images. Author
