The Molybdenum K-shell X-ray Emission Spectrum

Marcus H. Mendenhall, Lawrence T. Hudson, Csilla I. Szabo-Foster, Albert Henins, James P. Cline
Abstract We present newly measured spectra of the X-ray emission of a molybdenum metal anode subject to electron bombardment, using a very high dispersion

Contemporary x-ray wavelength metrology and traceability

Lawrence T. Hudson, James P. Cline, Albert Henins, Marcus H. Mendenhall, Csilla I. Szabo-Foster
We report recent advances in absolute x-ray wavelength metrology in the context of producing modern standard reference data. Primary standard x-ray wavelengths

A Reassessment of Absolute Energies of X-ray L Lines of Lanthanide Metals

Bradley K. Alpert, William B. Doriese, Gene C. Hilton, Lawrence T. Hudson, Young Il Joe, Kelsey M. Morgan, Carl D. Reintsema, Daniel R. Schmidt, Daniel S. Swetz, Csilla I. Szabo-Foster, Joel N. Ullom, Joseph W. Fowler, Galen C. O'Neil, Douglas A. Bennett
We introduce a new technique for determining x-ray fluorescence line energies and widths, and we present measurements made with this technique of 22 x-ray L

High-precision measurement of the X-ray Cu K-alpha spectrum

Marcus H. Mendenhall, Albert Henins, Lawrence T. Hudson, Csilla I. Szabo-Foster, Donald A. Windover, James P. Cline
The structure of the x-ray emission lines of the Cu Kα complex has been remeasured on a newly commissioned instrument, in a manner directly traceable to the
