Theory of the Accuracy of Wedge Density Matching of Logarithmically Sectored Spectra

Volume 14, Number 4 (Aug. 1960) Page 91-94

Green, Milton

An elementary theory on the accuracy of wedge-density matching for logarithmically sectored spectra is given The results of the theory show that, other things being equal, the fractional error, as a result of wedge-density matching, in the measurement of intensity ratios of line pairs varies inversely as the intensity scale gamma of the emulsion employed, and within limits, is independent of both the magnification of the spectrum and the sector constant.
