Paper Abstract

An X-ray-acoustic detector was realized which is sensitive for extremely soft X-ray flashes (5 eV - 10 keV, T < 1 μS). The total dose of the flash is measured by the X-ray acoustic effect. The absorbed energy induces an acoustical pulse which is registered with a microphone. The microphone signal depends on the absorbed energy only. It is independent of the wavelength of the X-rays. The dynamic range is limited only by the constance of thermal properties of the X-ray absorber and by the noise of the preamplifier. The influences on the signal are discussed for some properties of the absorber and for the X-ray flash time.
