The EM wave spectrum
Including the x-ray
A regular x-ray machine
Wilhelm Rontgen' wife hand with a ring on her hand was the 1st x-ray done on accident.
This video explains the different functions of an x-ray, the wavelength, frequency and much more.
New and improved X-ray
Who invented it and what is needed to operate it?
December 3, 2013 in London, England. For this new technology to operate, they found a way to produce clear x-ray beams from a variety of micro-sized point sources. Tiny chips would produce a beam of electrons that pass through a micro-structured plate that displays a beam of x-rays.
How will this impact our world?
