Paper Abstract

A narrowing of the line spread function (LSF) has been observed when small amounts of low ionization potential polar dopant molecules were added to gas-filled high pressure kinestatic charge detector (KCD) for x-ray digital radiography. The LSF narrowing is attributed to different coexisting physical mechanisms. In this study, the impact of long-range dipole moment forces, associated with low ionization potential polar molecules, during ion-polars collisions, is investigated. Finally, this study is implemented with experimental examples.
