    Abstract: In a complex and changing a remote sensing system, which requires taking quick and informed decisions environment, connectionist methods have shown their great contribution in particular the reduction and classification of spectral data. In this context, this paper proposes to study the parameters that optimize the results of an artificial neural n... Show More

    Abstract: This study examines several important features of characteristic X-rays, including their production, spectroscopy and interactions with materials. Characteristic X-rays for different elements (29Cu, 42Mo, 47Ag, 56Ba and 65Tb) were obtained from a variable energy X-ray source by using gamma rays around 60 keV from 241Am. It was found that the energy... Show More
