      The experiment will measure the thickness of a thin aluminum foil by sending a beam of x-rays through the foil. The thickness of the foil is related to the difference in the intensity of x-rays that pass through the aluminum ...
    • Measurement of Material Thickness using X-Ray Attenuation 

      Altayar, Abdullah Riyad
      The 60 kev x-rays from Americium-241 (241Am) have been used in an x-ray attenuation experiment to measure the thickness and attenuation coefficient of an aluminum alloy. Using traditional measurement tools such as a ...
