Abstract Title: TEL-X-Ometer
Abstract: The TEL-X-Ometer is a useful platform that can be used to perform a wide variety of x-ray experiments. Bragg's law will be demonstrated using single crystals of several ionic compounds, such as NaCl and LiF (all face centered cubic). In addition, investigation can be made into Mosley's theory that every element is characterized by its atomic number. The TEL-X-Ometer is a compact and portable x-ray machine. X-rays can be produced at either 20 or 30 KV by an x-ray tube with a copper cathode. Operation of the TEL-X-Ometer can be automated with the TEL-X-Driver. Data is recorded onto a computer using TEL-Atomic's software.
