X Rays and Moseley's Law

  1. Apr 4, 2005 #1

    I am looking for a website which explains the use of Moseley's Law for calculating parameters for characteristic X-ray spectra (in particular [itex]K_{\alpha}[/itex] lines and the compliance with Bohr's formula (modified).

    Searched google but didn't find anything comprehensive enough.

    Eagerly awaiting a reply...

    Thanks and cheers

    I'm sure you can google just as well as I, but here are two sites that look useful:

    Good chapter on X-rays: http://epmalab.uoregon.edu/pdfs/X_natur3%20_Chap%203_.pdf [Broken]
