Paper Abstract

An investigation is being carried out into the potential use of elastic (or Rayleigh) scattered photons for the rapid identification of low atomic number materials. This technique has applications in the food industry for on-line quality control as well as areas such as security screening, materials recycling, and possible medical diagnostics.
