Title Application of the HOTWAXS detector to imaging at higher X-ray energies (10keV-30keV)
Abstract The HOTWAXS (High Overall Throughput Wide Angle X-ray Scattering) gas detector system, aimed at X-ray diffraction )(XRD) and wide angle X-ray scattering (WAXS) applications has been a succesful user facility on stations 2.1 and 9.3 at the Daresbury SRS offering high speed data acquisition. The facility has been duplicated on stations 122 of the Diamond light sourse. The energy range covered by stations 122 and 9.3 are very similar varying from 6 to 30keV, well above the energy range conventionally covered by gas detectors. Here we report studies of the options for successful operation of HOTWAXS at the upper end of this energy range, made possible by this particular design.
