X-Ray WWW Server
Welcome to the X-Ray World Wide Web Server! This server has been operational
since April 1994. It is running on a DECStation 5100 which has been made
available by the Department
of Physics at Uppsala University in Sweden.
It is the repository of the COREX bibliography and database, the Henke atomic
scattering factors, and other information of interest to x-ray spectroscopists.
It provides links to additional locations for information about x-ray research,
including conferences, synchrotron radiation laboratories,
and other x-ray related Web or FTP
sites. You can view the statistics for operation of
this server. For more information you can e-mail the XRAYMAN at: firstname.lastname@example.orgServer last

Getting access to the contents of the server
- The COREX Database
- A database of atomic and molecular core edge excitation oscillator
strengths, as described by A.P. Hitchcock and D.C. Mancini, in Journal of
Electron Spectroscopy and Related Phenomena, Vol. 67, No. 1 (1994). You
may display the oscillator strengths or download the files for use. Contents
are compiled and Copyright © 1993, 1994 by A.P. Hitchcock and D.C. Mancini,
all rights reserved.
- The COREX
- Bibliographies and indices for the COREX Database in a variety of formats.
You can perform simple searches on the bibliography, and view or download the
entries that match your query.
- The Henke X-ray
- The x-ray scattering factors f1 and f2 as published by B. L. Henke, E. M.
Gullikson, and J. C. Davis, in Atomic Data and Nuclear Data Tables,
Vol. 54, No. 2 (1993). It is also accessible via a Periodic Table interface.
- X-ray Emission
- The x-ray emission line energies as published by J. A. Bearden, in "X-Ray
Wavelengths," Rev. Mod. Phys. 39, (1967) p.78.
- Electron Binding
- The electron binding energies of the elements in their natural form, as
compiled by Gwyn Williams from published sources.
- The Bell Jar
electronic issue no. 2 (October 1994)
- This article, Generating X-Rays With
Receiving Tubes, describes the experiments of Bob Templeman of Chicago
IL, condensed from material originally presented in Vol. 3, Nos. 1 & 2
(Winter & Spring 1994) of the Bell Jar. Old TV tubes are used as
cold cathode x-ray emitters in a simple apparatus developed by Bob Templeman.
With some beam tubes, the intensity is adequate to make x-ray photographs of
objects using standard films.
- Historical Information about X-Rays
- Currently, includes a list of Nobel Prizes awarded
for research using x-rays.
