Transmission radiography of bulk materials using continuously energy-tunable quasimonochromatic photon beams has been performed with the photons of a few tens MeV. The photon beam is generated with the laser-Compton scattering of the 300–800 MeV electrons in the electron storage ring “TERAS” with laser lights. The present radiography system is applicable to an inspection of bulk materials and to nondestructive testing of large industrial products. The effectiveness of the method has been examined using metals, ceramics, and concrete blocks. The spatial resolution of the radiography system was measured to be 650 μm using a 1 mm collimator system. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.
