Paper Abstract

The new silverless radiophotoluminescence substances - a single alkaly- halide crystals (nondoped and doped by In +2 ) are proposed and tested as X-ray image detectors. Their spatial resolution is not worse than 2 pm and they allow detection of pictures in X-rays with a dynamic range of about I 0 000. A stored X-ray image can be read out many times by photoluminescence measurements under UV excitation. The image can be erased completely by heating ofphosphor at a temperature of 400 °C during a half an hour. Unique combination of the resolution and the dynamic range of lyminosity offers sample scope for x-ray microscopy under biology. Keywords: X-ray microscopy, radiophotoluminescence, alkaly- halide crystals
