Parametric x ray radiation in crystals theory experiments and applications

This systematic and accomplished monograph is dedicated to parametric X-ray radiation (PXR). This radiation is generated via the movement of electrons inside of a crystal, wherein the emitted photons are diffracted via the crystal and the radiation depth severely depends on the parameters of the crystal constitution.

The loss (absorption or attenuation) in different materials always increases with frequency. For water the absorption coefficient increases as for castor oil as f~ and soft tissues approximately r, asp. 2, shear waves do not readily propagate in soft tissue and are therefore subject to very high attenuation - typically over one thousand times higher than that for compressional waves. Shear waves are of importance in medical ultrasound when compressional waves impinge on bone. 4. 0 164 27 FUNDAMENTALS OF ULTRASONIC PROPAGATION "mode conversion".

5 Radiation Force The propagation of ultrasound through a medium is associated with a simultaneous transfer of momentum. Momentum is transferred to any absorbing or reflecting obstacle which intercepts the ultrasonic beam and this is revealed as a radiation force acting on the obstacle. The measurement of this force provides the basis of a number of acoustic intensity or power measuring systems. The force actually depends on the time-averaged intensity in the ultrasonic beam. Two basic types of measurement system may be defined dependent on how much of the ultrasonic beam is intercepted by the obstacle or target: 1.

The acoustical parameters most relevant to the thermal effects are the beam-width and the time-average intensity, and are of greatest importance in physiotherapy. However, the high output levels of some types of Doppler equipment mean that tissue heating generated by these systems cannot be overlooked. Non-thermal effects are related to the mechanical stress induced in a material during the oscillating displacements caused by the passage of ultrasound. Effects such as cavitation or micro-streaming are considered to be important, although cavitation is, at the moment, thought to be more significant.
