Premium Precision of a rotating‐drum film scannerPremium
journal of applied crystallography
Precession X‐ray films were scanned with a rotating‐drum microdensitometer. It is necessary to correct for non‐linearity between the scanner input and output. Reliability factors for estimating the precision of scanner measurements are compared. The values of the symmetry‐averaged reliability factor, R sym , vary between 3.9 and 12% and depend strongly on the quality of films, while the values of the scanning reproducibility factor, R rept (3.5–4%), and the film‐scaling reliability factor, R scale (4.5–5.5%), depend more on the quality of scanner software and electronics than on films.
