Micro Miniature X-ray Source
The Micro Miniature X-ray Source, an innovative technology developed by AET, can accelerate electron beams in a high-gradient electric field by a micro miniature X-ray tube, and extract X-rays from a target. It is also possible to extract only electron beams through a vacuum thin film. The Micro Miniature X-ray Source consists of a flexible coaxial cable and the micro miniature X-ray tube with a carbon nanotube cathode, which has been developed using high-voltage and ultra-short pulse technology.
Applications include usage in medical treatment, research and industry such as radiation therapy and non-destructive inspection.
