Production of xrays, rotating anodes Rotation of anode constantly brings fresh metal target are into focal spot, allows greater power Elements of xray diffraction , B.D. Cullity and S.R. Stock, input without excessive heating These tubes can operate at power levels 5 to 10 times higher than fixed focus tubes 2.html

Synchrotron x rays Dove p122 Dove, p122 Fundamental limitation of lab xray tubes is the maximum intensity is limited t t h ti d ti i i ffi i t limitations of lab xray A) Heat to prevent overheating; xrays production is very inefficient Rotating anode helps but still has limitations B) Usable wavelengths are limited by target A Finer control of wavelength is needed in some applications ex) to get resonance wavelength needs to be near absorption edge Synchrotron sources

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
