Abstract

A source of monochromatic X-ray radiation is wanted in industry, science, medicine and so on. Many ways of making such a source are known. The present work describes two mechanisms for the creation of a monochromatic X-ray beam, which are parametric X-ray radiation (PXR) and bremsstrahlung diffraction (DBS). Both the experiments were carried out using an electron beam at a microtron. During the first experiment, the DBS process was investigated as a scattering of the Bremsstrahlung (BS) beam on the crystallographic surfaces of tungsten and pyrolytic graphite crystals. The second experiment consisted in the registration of the PXR and DBS yield during the passage of the electrons through the same crystals as in the first experiment. The spectral and orientation radiation characteristics and simulation results obtained for the DBS and PXR processes are presented. It is shown that the usage of mosaic crystalline targets is rather useful in order to obtain a monochromatic X-ray source based on bremsstrahlung diffraction from moderately relativistic electrons.
