Abstract
For plastic explosives detection with coherent x-ray scattering, x-ray tubes are required having high brightness and a 'white' spectral shape. Since the photon spectrum of reflection-type x- ray tubes drops rapidly above the K edge, the properties of transmission anode x-ray tubes have been investigated. In order to maximize the brightness, the use of a geometry in which the intensity of bremsstrahlung radiation has a maximum is proposed. Experimental results obtained from such an x-ray tube are presented.
