X-ray emissions from femtosecond processed materials

  We recently were made aware of a study which investigated the X-ray emissions from a molybdenum target ablated by 35 femtosecond laser pulses – http://ieeexplore.ieee.org/document/8010306/. The authors found that the total emission can easily exceed the maximum annual equivalent dose of 1 mSv allowed within 60 minutes of irradiation. The implication is that any laser … More X-ray emissions from femtosecond processed materials
