1. Ultra-Thin Curved Transmission Crystals for High Resolving Power (up to E/¿E=6300) X-Ray Spectroscopy in the 6 keV to 13 keV Energy Range
Published: 12/9/2014
Authors: Lawrence T Hudson, John F Seely, Jack Leigh Glover, Albert Henins, Nino R. Pereira
Abstract: Ultra-thin curved transmission crystals operating in the Cauchois spectrometer geometry were evaluated for the purpose of achieving high spectral resolution in the 6 keV to 13 keV x-ray energy range. The crystals were silicon (111) and sapphire R- cu ...

2. The Metrology of a Rastered Spot of X Rays used in Security Screening
Series: Journal of Research (NIST JRES)
Report Number: 119
Published: 11/6/2014
Authors: Lawrence T Hudson, Jack Leigh Glover, Ronaldo Minniti
Abstract: In recent times, ionizing radiation has been used around the world to screen persons for non-medical purposes, namely to detect bulk explosives or other contraband hidden on the body including materials not registered by metal detectors. In contrast ...

3. Measurement of High-Energy (10 keV to 60 keV) X-Ray Spectral Line Widths with eV Accuracy
Published: 8/8/2014
Authors: John F Seely, Jack Leigh Glover, Lawrence T Hudson, Yuri Ralchenko, Nino R. Pereira, U. Feldman, C. Di Stefan
Abstract: A high resolution crystal spectrometer (HRCS) utilizing a crystal in transmission geometry has been developed and experimentally optimized to measure the line widths of emission lines in the 10 keV to 60 keV energy range with eV accuracy. The spectro ...

4. Measurement of the O2O3O4 and O3O4O5 Super Coster-Kronig Rates in Tungsten via Asymmetric Diffraction Spectrometry
Published: 3/7/2014
Authors: Lawrence T Hudson, John F Seely, Jack Leigh Glover, Yuri Ralchenko, Nino R Pereira, Uri Feldman
Abstract: The tungsten Lγ transitions between 11 keV and 12 keV and Kα transitions from 57 keV to 60 keV were produced by a laboratory electron-bombarded x-ray source and simultaneously recorded with high-resolution by using multiple diffraction plan ...

5. High-resolution K-shell spectra from laser excited molybdenum plasma
Published: 11/1/2013
Authors: Lawrence T Hudson, C.I Szabo, P Indelicatio, John F Seely, T Ma
Abstract: X-ray spectra from Molybdenum plasmas were recorded by a Cauchois-type cylindrically bent Transmission Crystal Spectrometer (TCS). The absolutely calibrated spectrometer provides an unprecedented resolution of inner shell transitions (K x-ray radiati ...

6. A method for organic/inorganic differentiation using an x-ray forward/backscatter personnel scanner
Published: 9/10/2013
Authors: Jack Leigh Glover, Lawrence T Hudson
Abstract: A method is proposed for performing organic/inorganic materials discrimination using an x-ray forward/backscatter scanner. The method is demonstrated using a commercially available personnel security-screening system and requires only image post proc ...

8. Reply to ,Comment on "Testing Three-body Quantum Electrodynamics with Trapped Ti20+ Ions: Evidence for a Z-Dependent Divergence between Experiment and Calculation"
Published: 4/12/2013
Authors: Lawrence T Hudson, C T Chantler, M N Kinnane, John D Gillaspy, A.T. Payne, L F Smale, Albert Henins, Joshua M Pomeroy, J A Kimpton, E Takacs, K Makonyi
Abstract: We find that Epp‰s [1] hypothesis - namely that the current experimental data set is well represented by a small constant or zero offset from the predictions of Artemyev et al. [2] - is not supported by standard statistical analysis. We find that add ...

9. Testing Three-body Quantum Electrodynamics with Trapped Ti-20 Ions: Evidence for a Z-Dependent Divergence between Experiment and Calculation
Published: 10/10/2012
Authors: Lawrence T Hudson, C T Chantler, Mark N. Kinnane, John D Gillaspy, A.T. Payne, L F Smale, Albert Henins, Joseph N Tan, J A Kimpton, E Takacs, K Makonyi, Joshua M Pomeroy
Abstract: We report the measurement of the w (1s2p 1P1 ! 1s2 1S0) resonance line transition energy in helium-like titanium. Our result, 4749.85(7) eV, deviates from the most recent ab initio prediction by three times our experimental uncertainty and by many ...
