A method for automatic collimator alignment in microdensity measurements


, : A method for automatic collimator alignment in microdensity measurements. Wood science and technology 30(2): 91-97

In microdensitometry, based on X-ray absorption technique and a "direct", "electronic" detector technique, it is usually not possible to observe the collimator and its alignment to the annual ring under investigation during the measurement. In this paper a method for automatic alignment of the collimator to the ring is described. The operating technique is based on an optimization of the resolution of the instrument at every annual ring while the collimator is rotated to the best position. The procedure has been in use a number of years and has proven itself to be efficient and reliable. The theory of operation for the procedure is described and its software structure is shown in a block diagram. Advantages and limitations of the procedure are discussed.
