Abstract:Also, during the progress of this dissertation, two valuable SIEC derivatives--an SIEC wavelength tunable x-ray source (SIEC-TX) and an IEC linear neutron source device (C-device)--have been developed. The SIEC-TX generates x-rays by electron-electron interactions at relativistic velocity at the sphere center when the electrons are accelerated and focused by a spherical grid. The wavelength of the emitted x-rays shifts as the grid bias is changed. The C-device is a radically different cylindrical version of the SIEC that holds promise for applications requiring that geometry. The C-device is developed to produce a portable neutron line source. When stacked, they become a plane source.
