Pyroelectric accelerator and X-ray source in pulsed mode
The conception of operation of the pyroelectric accelerator and X-ray source in pulsed mode is at first proposed and demonstrated experimentally. The pulsed mode became possible due to application of the additional controlled source of electrons in the pyroelectric accelerator. In the proof-of-principle experiment, the power of X-ray radiation in pulsed mode increased one in common quasi-continuous mode in more than two orders of magnitude. Perspectives for further increasing of the power and application of pulsed pyroelectric X-ray source in fast X-ray imaging are discussed.
