APP OF THE MONTH: X-ray Transitions Energies Mobile App
OFFERED BY: SGX Sensortech
PLATFORMS: Android (2.3.3 and up), iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch (requires iOS 5.0). This app is optimized for iPhone 5.
WHAT IT DOES: With a reverse look-up function, this app is designed to allow the user to specify a transition energy value in keV and will automatically determine and display the elements and ‘lines’ closest to this value. It reportedly allows the user to select an element and displays the X-ray transition energies for this element. Values are based on experimental values. Where experimental values are not available, the database uses theoretically derived values. The app also includes a database with general properties for each element.
