X-Ray Machines & Other Radiation-Producing Equipment

Bruker X-Ray Diffractometer

A wide variety of radiation-producing sources are used on campus.  These include:

  • Electron microscopes and similar equipment used for materials research, for example, e-beam writers and lithography systems
  • X-ray diffraction equipment
  • A high-voltage x-ray irradiator
  • Cabinet x-ray systems
  • Radiography equipment used for x-raying artwork
  • Medical x-ray systems
  • X-ray fluorescence analyzers (portable and bench-top)
  • X-ray photoelectron spectrometers
  • Electron beam evaporators
  • Neutron generators

Generally, all radiation-producing equipment capable of operating at voltages greater than 5 kV must be registered with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.    Consult with the Radiation Safety Officer before you acquire such equipment. 

EHS will provide the following services for users of radiation-producing equipment:

  • Registration (EHS will handle all the paperwork to register radiation-producing equipment or to cancel registrations)
  • Training
  • Radiation Surveys
  • Radiation Monitoring Badges
