Brilliant x-ray radiation from a low emittance 855 MeV electron beam
MetadataShow full item record
Electron storage rings as synchrotron radiation sources are presently the most powerful x-ray sources in the energy range between 0.53 keV, the "water window" for microscopy of biological molecules, and 33.16 keV, the K-edge of iodine for a possible coronary angiography. However, with the advent of modern electron accelerators delivering high current low emittance electron beams with energies up to a few GeV it was realized that they may present also attractive sources of intense x rays. In this contribution we report on the investigation of resonant transition radiation in the x-ray region (XTR), and parametric x-ray radiation (PXR) as such x-ray sources. The experiments have been performed with the low emittance (3 it nm rad) 855 MeV electron beam of the Mainz Microtron MAMI....

Halcrow, Stephanie D. (Monterey California. Naval Postgraduate School, 2007-12);The amount of energy the United States (U.S.) consumes increases every year and this growth in energy consumption outpaces energy production. To fill this gap, the U.S. imports 35 percent of its energy. More importantly, ...
