Soft X-ray Vs Hard X-ray | Difference between Soft X-ray and Hard X-ray

This page compares Soft X-ray Vs Hard X-ray and mentions difference between Soft X-ray and Hard X-ray.

Soft X-Ray

• Frequency: 30 to 3000 PHz
• Wavelength: 10 to 0.1 mm
• Photon Energy : lower
• Application : mammography

Hard X-Ray

• Frequency: 3 to 300 EHz
• Wavelength: 100 to 1 pm
• Photon Energy : Higher, above 5 to 10 keV
• Application: It is used to image inside of objects such as medical radiography, airport security, to determine crystal structures etc.

Following is the major difference between soft x-ray and hard x-ray.
➨Hard X-rays will have higher energy where as Soft X-rays will have lower energy.
➨Hard X-rays will have shorter wavelength where as Soft X-rays will have longer wavelength.
