The x-ray is the only invention that became a regular diagnostic tool in hospitals within a week of its first observation by Roentgen in Even today, x-rays are a great characterization tool at the hands of Cited by: 6.   Spectroscopy is a complex art - but it can be very useful in helping scientists understand how an object like a black hole, neutron star, or active galaxy is producing light, how fast it is moving, . The latter feature allows a much more compact design for achieving high resolution than for a grating spectrometer because x-ray wavelengths are small compared to attainable path length differences. . Development of X-ray Spectroscopy These brilliant first results of crystal X-ray spectroscopy confirmed and extended the knowledge of the characteristic X-radiation. They shawed that X-ray .

The Alpha Particle X-Ray Spectrometer will measure the abundance of chemical elements in rocks and soils. Funded by the Canadian Space Agency, the APXS will be placed in contact with rock and soil . elements, repeat the pioneering work of Moseley relating X-ray energies to atomic number, and also explore the use of X-rays as a diagnostic tool for sample identification.
