Just a question re high power xray

  1. Feb 7, 2008 #1
    i was checking out the web and ran across an experiment in Siberia that had a grant.
    the experiment was a 300 kw electron beam at 5 MeV for efficient conversion to xray.
    to me this has such an interesting use for industry both electron beam and xray. if it had a 10% efficiency on power used FOR XRAY.

    WOULD IT BE CHEAPER TO OPERATE THAN A COBALT FACILITY?

    check out beam one

    check out beam one

    http://www.beam-one.com/

    select electron beam technology then how it works

    wait for the animation to start in the black box

    this is electron beam for industry

    if you add an xray converter to this you have a low power xray source

    ion beam accelerators are big on this technology
