Hamamatsu Photonics Introduces the new ?Dual Energy? X-ray Line Scan CameraHamamatsu Photonics32, Hamamatsu-city, Japan
Hamamatsu Photonics introduces the new C10800 series of Dual Energy X-ray Line Scan Cameras specifically designed for imaging materials and objects requiring improved detection and composition classification.
Dual energy X-ray imaging technology consists of combining two radiographs acquired at two distinct energy levels (high energy and low energy) thus allowing density as well as other material characteristics to be determined. Intensity in high energy image and low energy image appears differently because every material has different X-ray transmittance efficiency. Depending on the ratio between these two acquired images and after adjusting relative intensity level, it is possible to extract target material information.
Please see below an application example of the C10800 in dangerous liquid detection (Ethanol) not detectable with traditional single energy X-ray line scan cameras:
g a variety of combinations of scintillator, filters and gain factor, it is possible to optimize this camera for different object and X-ray conditions in order to cover a wide range of applications including food and industrial inspection requiring a high contrast imaging, composite material sorting, rare metal and mineral detection, security and cargo screening, drug detection, waste sorting and recycling. For various options such as detection width, photodiode array (PDA) pixel pitch or X-ray energy range please contact your local Hamamatsu office.
