Abstract:

An X-ray test facility is described which provides photon beams of sharply-defined energy in the range 5 to 250 keV. Methods adopted include the use of composite filters and radiator foils. Characteristics of the radiation beams are established, including their intensities, energy spectra, and transverse uniformities, and a novel operating chart is presented. The facility may be employed for a wide range of radiation experiments, and its application to the testing and calibration of civilian, military, and civil defence radiation measuring instruments is considered in detail.
