Depth of Electron Penetration = Depth of X-ray Emission
Electrons IN : X-rays OUT
This chart (Monte Carlo simulation) shows the depth from which X-rays are emitted when excited by electron beams having 5 kV, 10 kV, 15 kV and 20 kV acceleration potential.
The total depth being probed was defined to be 1,000 nm (10,000 ang). Results from five (5) elements were calculated, with atom numbers (Z#) ranging from 6 to 79.
