Schematic diagram of the first experimental setup and measurement.
Design of the SLEP-150 accelerator with a gas diode and a collector: (1) part of generator, (2) peaking spark gap, (3) capacitive divider, (4) discharge gap of the gas diode, (5) cathode, (6) collector with a 20 mm diameter of the receiving part, and (7) foil reinforced with a grid.
Arrangement of the electrodes in the gas diodes for X-ray generation: (Dos) dosimeter, (A) anode, (F) foil filter, (K) cathode, (l) dosimeter—filter spacing, and (d) cathode—anode spacing. The generator is connected from the right side. The distance between the filter (F) and electrode (K) is 2 mm.
Voltage-current waveforms at different anode foils (applied voltage: −90 kV, and PRF: 1000 Hz).
Discharge images at different anode foils, (a) no discharge, (b) copper foil, (c) titanium foil, and (d) aluminum foil (applied voltage: −90 kV, and PRF: 1000 Hz).
Energy distribution of X-rays at different anode foils (applied voltage: −90 kV, and PRF: 1000 Hz).
Variation of X-rays count with the atomic number of foil under different PRFs (applied voltage: −90 kV).
Voltage-current waveforms at different gap spacings (applied voltage: 90 kV and PRF: 500 Hz).
Autographs of the (a) electron beam on the RF-3 X-ray film after a single shot and (b) X-ray radiation after 100 shots behind the 10 μm aluminum foil.
The X-ray exposure dose for one pulse with different gaps and the 10-μm Al filters for the gas diode depicted in Fig. 3. (1) Al anode. (2) stainless steel anode. (3) Ta anode.
The exposure doses and x-ray count obtained for the anodes made of different metals to which the high-voltage pulses were applied.
