Between September 1975 and December 2015, there have been some 75,719 catalogued GOES soft X-ray events, with SC23 having the largest sum total of NSXRE (= 23,308 events); SC21 had 19,117 events, SC22 had 21,230 events, and to date (through 2015) SC24 has had 12,013 events.
X-ray light enters these tubes from multiple angles and is focused through reflection, giving the technology a wide field of view necessary for globally imaging the emission of soft X-rays.
Soft X-ray beamlines will be used to study the chemistry and structure of gases, liquids and solids by measuring the absorption of the light, as well as the energies and directions of various particles such as electrons emitted after a soft X-ray photon is absorbed.
