X-ray units

From: Jo Atkinson <jo.atkinson>

The Nicholson Museum at Sydney University has received a grant to
purchase an X-ray unit.  The objects within the collection are
archaeological--ceramics, stone, glass, bronze, iron and organics.
We have been looking at purchasing an Imaging Intensifier--which is
expensive, but very neat in terms of the image output (removing the
need to process the film) and ease and safety of operation.  We are
still concerned that we may not be able to get the range of kV
necessary to examine such a wide range of materials.  We would
appreciate hearing from anyone with any hints or experience in using
and/or purchasing an X-ray unit for use on such a collection.
