X-Ray Imaging JS Model
written by Michael R. Gallis
The X-Ray Imaging Model  simulates the basic concepts of X-Ray imaging, exploring how different aspects of both the X-Ray source and the sample affect the X-Ray image.  The simulation has a main window which contains the simulated image and the controls to manipulate the X-Ray characteristics and the physical characteristics of the sample to be imaged. In addition to the main panel, there are two optional windows. The first contains a graph of the X-ray spectrum and a second graph of the simulated exposure level of the film. The second optional window shows the geometry of the sample, which consists of a slab with two embedded cylinders within it.

The X-Ray Imaging JavaScript Model was developed using the Easy Java Simulations (EjsS) version 5.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run html page and requires only a browser with JavaScript support.
