Following an X-ray
A Brief Probability Review
- An electron hitting the target has some probability of creating an X-ray photon, this is a constant based on target material and excitation voltage
- That X-ray photon has some probability of pointing in the right direction, this is a constant based on tube, object, and detector geometries
- That X-ray has some probability of hitting the detector, this is a constant based on the sample density in the X-ray’s path being absorbed or scattered by the sample,
