Determination of the voltage applied to x-ray tubes from the bremsstrahlung spectrum obtained with a silicon PIN photodiode.

Abstract

This work describes a methodology for the obtainment of the electron accelerating potential (kVp) applied to an x-ray tube, through the determination of the end point of the energy spectrum of the radiation emitted by the tube. The measurements have been performed utilizing alternatively two silicon PIN photodiodes, directly irradiated by the x-ray beam… (More)
