X-rays a.k.a. X-ray: X-radiation is a form of electromagnetic radiation. Most X-rays have a wavelength ranging from 0.01 to 10 nanometers, corresponding to frequencies in the range 30 petahertz to 30 exahertz and energies in the range 100 eV to 100 keV. X-ray wavelengths are shorter than those of UV rays and typically longer than those of gamma rays. In many languages, X-radiation is referred to with terms meaning Röntgen radiation, after Wilhelm Röntgen, who is usually credited as its discoverer, and who had named it X-radiation to signify an unknown type of radiation. Spelling of X-ray in the English language includes the variants x-ray, xray and X ray.
- also known as Röntgen radiation, X ray

X-RAY X-rays are part ofthe electromagnetic spectrum, which includes light, radio waves, infra-red and ultra-violet radiation. X-rays have a very high frequency (the waves vibrate very rapidly) which gives them a very high energy . This means ...

An average luminosity of 55 MW was found, which agreed well with the theoretical predictions for scattered solar X-rays. In addition to the CeKa and OeKa emission at 0.28 and 0.53 keV, respectively, the LETG/ACIS-S spectrum also showed ...

Quotes about X-Rays
In general, the objects in the universe that are very high-energy objects, or the processes that are high-energy processes, will radiate more in the short wavelength range towards the gamma rays or the x-rays. (Claude Nicollier)
