The polychromatic molybdenum X-ray spectrum is analyzed by means
of a monocrystal. The energy of the characteristic lines is
determined from the positions of the glancing angles at various
orders of diffraction. The separation of the K
doublet in higher order diffraction is examined.
- Record the intensity of the X-rays emitted by the molybdenum
anode as a function of the Bragg angle using a LiF monocrystal
- Determine the wavelengths and ratio of the intensities of the
lines in high order diffraction and compare your results with
the theoretical predictions.
