Paper Abstract

Coherent x-ray scatter is a very powerful analytical tool for the unambiguous identification of explosives having a polycrystalline structure. Its use in a realistic security screening environment depends on optimum matching of the measurement arrangment to the detection problem in order to minimize erroneous recognition while fulfilling stringent scan time requirements. The influence of such parameters as x-ray tube energy, scatter angle, primary beam geometry, and detector arrangement on system performance are considered and ways in which they may be optimized are discussed.
