Paper Abstract

A combination of an X-ray absorption instrument and an image processing system is described and data on cigarette densities are presented. Using an electro-mechanically controlled positioning unit the automatic analysis of samples larger than the sensor area is possible by sequential imaging storage. The final analysis of the image of the total object results in characteristic functions and parameters which can be related statistically to material specific measurements. This procedure is illustrated with a cigarette tobacco rod.
