1 Gas Detectors X-ray radiation is able to ionize gases. This fact was discovered very early in the last century and led to the development of the well-known Geiger–Müller counter. In the first tomographic experiments carried out by Cormack and Hounsfield, the Geiger– Müller counter was used as a detector in pencil-beam geometry. In the early days of clinical CT, gas-based detector arrays were also manufactured for what are known as third-generation scanners in fan-beam geometry. Even today, some scanners using high-pressure xenon are in use.

In Fig. , the typical composition of such a digital flat-panel X-ray detector is shown. In Fig. a, the key aspect of the construction is illustrated. Each sensor element consists of a photodiode and a thin-film transistor (TFT). Both are made of amorphous silicon on a single glass substrate. The pixel matrix is coated with an X-ray-sensitive layer. Multi-chip modules are used as read-out electronics at the edge of the detector field. The X-ray-sensitive coating is a cesium iodide layer used, for example, in General Electric CT systems.

B illustrates a K β emission. ) where Z is again the atomic number of the anode material and n is the principal quantum number of the electron falling to the K-shell.  Experiments are in good agreement with Kramers’ result, but show a slight dependence on Z.   2 Fundamentals of X-ray Physics The result is the production of a large number of X-ray quanta at a few discrete energies. It can be seen in Fig.  that the probability of X-ray quanta emerging by the Kα process is higher than the probability of bremsstrahlung quanta at the same energy.
