Rotary anode advantages?

  1. Sep 30, 2009 #1
    I am planning to undertake the construction of an x-ray tube as a personal project with a friend of mine and I was wondering what are the advantages of a rotary anode? I'm having no trouble finding information on their construction, but have yet to run across the reasons for using one in the first place.
