X-Ray SpectroscopyAuthor(s): Aakshi Kainthola
Photons, or light particles, with wavelengths in the X-ray region of the electromagnetic spectrum are detected and measured using X-ray spectroscopy. It's utilised to aid scientists in deciphering an object's chemical and elemental properties. In various fields of science and technology, including archaeology, astronomy, and engineering, X-ray spectroscopy is employed in a variety of ways. These methods can be used separately or in combination to generate a more complete image of the material or object under investigation. X-rays are a type of electromagnetic radiation that includes X-rays. The slowing of high-energy electrons produces X-rays with wavelengths ranging from 0.01 to 10 nanometers, corresponding to frequencies in the range 30 petahertz to 30 exahertz (31016 Hz to 31019 Hz) and energies in the range 100 eV to 100 keV.
