Xray - what physics discipline?

  1. Sep 23, 2009 #1

    New here. I work in the design and manufacture of medical xray tubes (CT applications mostly). So off and on I think about going back to grad school (have a BS in physics-general).

    So for my first question to the forum, what discipline would you categorize the field of xray generation. Specifically using a vacuum enclosure, anode, cathode, electron beam, bremmstrahlung and KShell emission?

    I'm starting to lean toward quantum physics, but could also see accelerator physics... not sure.
