Whether it’s at the boarding gates at the airport, at the entrance to a festival or international concert, the doors of a government building, or a parcel sorting centre (to name but a few), we’ve all encountered some sort of X-ray baggage scanner before. These well-designed devices play a vital role in ensuring the security of the public as well as officials, and in the monitoring of illegal activities. They also ensure that regular activity can go ahead with minimal disruption – imagine the ridiculous queues one would have to stand in if, instead of an X-ray baggage scanner, security had to search each and every parcel manually.
The purpose of this device is to allow the operator to detect any dangerous and/or contraband items within luggage, parcels and/or cargo. After the X-rays pass through the item, they are picked up by a detector. This detector then passes the X-rays on to a filter, which blocks out the lower-energy X-rays. Since different materials absorb X-rays at different levels, the image on the monitor allows the machine operator to see distinct items inside your bag.
