Abstract

A brief discussion is presented of the X-ray absorption process in xenon above its K-edge of 34.6 keV. Experimental measurements from a one-dimensional proportional chamber, operating with a gas mixture of Xe/10%CO2, show that position resolution in the region of 100 μm FWHM can be achieved for X-rays with energy just above the K-edge.
