Paper Abstract

Experimental data and results from a detailed Monte Carlo (MC) simulation of X-ray Fluorescence, Compton and Rayleigh scattering tomography are presented. The MC model was developed by the authors for aiding the optimization and evaluation of synchrotron radiation induced X-ray fluorescence (SRXRF) experiments. The code simulates complete X-ray fluorescence spectra in the incident energy range of 1 - 100 keV, including K,L fluorescent lines and Compton, Rayleigh scattering contributions. This generalized simulation model describes the interactions between X-ray photons and heterogenous samples. The MC code was evaluated by comparisons of simulated and experimental X-ray fluorescent and scattering tomography data. These data were collected at HASYLAB, beamline L (polychromatic setup) and BW5 (monochromatic setup). Good agreement was found between experimental and simulated results.
