23 August 2017 120-kV and 5-watt compact x-ray source
Author Affiliations +
Moxtek has developed an integrated 120 kV X-ray tube with high voltage power supply intended for use in portable devices. This small device, with photon energies ranging from 30keV to 120 keV, expands the accessibility of miniature X-ray sources for the XRF, NDT imaging, and security markets. The low weight of 1.3kg, self-shielding radiation, and battery-powered design make it ideal for portable handheld devices. The bipolar transmission window eliminates the heel-effect and its associated detriments in some imaging applications that are typical of reflection anodes. This also enables the X-ray output to be easily configured for either cone or fan beam.
