Evaluation of Compact X-Ray Source Using Multiple LiTaO3 Single Crystals
Three and six LiTaO3 single crystals are used to achieve continuous emission of high-intensity X-rays. Furthermore, the interaction between X-rays and the case of the X-ray source is used to generate electrons. X-rays were emitted continuously and fluctuations in the count rate were reduced when three or six crystals were used. Moreover, the X-ray intensity increased and the number of electrons generated by the above-mentioned interaction increased with increasing number of crystals.
