Synchrotron X-ray Measurements

  1. Sep 28, 2013 #1
    I am curious about a question. in synchrotron station,people use x ray to do kinds of experiments.
    They use the x ray ,how do they know the characteristic(like wavelength,brightness) of the ray they use. Does they measure the x ray when they use it simultaneously? Does this have an bad effect on
    the stability of the x ray? if they characterization before application,is this too troublesome? how they actually change between characterization and application? Thank you!!

    thank you sir,I have read the materials on the website! how do they measure x rays? after the measure, they should use them,but where is the measurement intruments. Does they block the
    x ray or they are removed?

    The first article tells you how they measure the X-rays.
