Definition of characteristic radiation in English:
Radiation consisting of wavelengths which are peculiar to the element which emits them.
- The peaks of characteristic radiation of each element can be seen at their own places on the energy scale.
- If several metals are present in the target, each will emit its characteristic radiation independently.
- In addition to the characteristic radiation, a continuous radiation spectrum of low intensity is produced ranging from a very low energy to the maximum kV-peak setting.
