The new paradox of dual modality X-Ray diamond sorting

Abstract:

Modern-day diamond sorting is achieved through the application of X-ray lumi- nescence (XRL) and X-ray transmission (XRT) techniques. Sorting with XRL is limited to the class range of 1.25 mm to 32 mm because of self-absorption associated with larger dia- monds, greater than 32mm. The effect of self-absorption is also a high-energy phenomenon in XRL. XRT is limited to sorting large size diamonds as the technique suffers poor contrast for diamonds smaller than 10mm. XRT measurements are immune to self-absorption for all sample sizes, while XRL measurements have good contrast for particles smaller than 32mm. The applications of these techniques have hitherto been used independently of each other and have subsequently progressed mutually exclusively. Here we analytically show a new paradox of a dual-modality X-ray diamond sorting combining XRL and XRT techniques’ strengths. Key features of our new paradoxical model performance are contrast mitigation for small particles and self-absorption rejection for a large particle at high energy as well as improved particle detectability and classification.
