Employing Electronic Features Extraction to Improve The X-ray Detection Based on Aluminums Filter

Dhuha Abdulmunem Mohammad, Omar Ibrahim Alsaif, Mohammed Khalid Yousif


The X-ray detection improvement using many filters for soil samples are studied. The peak to background ratio is calculated for many filters and without filter mode. A non-destructive Energy Dispersive X-ray Fluorescence (EDXRF) spectrometer was used for measuring and analysing samples. Five filters can be used to decrease the background noise. Aluminium filter gave the best performance of peak / background ratio when measure any sample comparing with other filters. This work also included a SpekCalc program to calculate the X-ray spectra from different filters for different thicknesses. For Al, Cu, Be and Ti filters, the value of peak / background ratio are calculated. The best result is achieved at a maximum value of peak / background ratio. The obtained results from EDXRF spectrometer and simulation showed that increases of Aluminum filter thickness improved the detection of material samples.
