The calculated position resolutions for X-ray photons (1-60 keV) in pure noble gases at atmospheric pressure are presented. In this work we show the influence of the atomic shells and the detector dimensions on the intrinsic position resolution of the used noble gas. The calculated results were obtained by using a new software tool, Degrad, and compared to the available experimental data. (C) 2015 The Authors. Published by Elsevier B. V.
