Abstract

The measured characteristics of tunable, quasi-monochromatic X-rays from thin multilayer mirrors used as radiators mounted inside a 35 MeV betatron chamber are presented. Parametric X-ray radiation (PXR) was generated by 15-33 MeV electrons passing through two radiators consisted of a few hundreds of W/B4C bilayers with period of 14.86 and 18 A. Shifts of the PXR spectra were measured as the orientation of the multilayer radiators relative to the incident electron beam was changed. The PXR flux was determined by comparison with the yield of L fluorescence generated by electrons in the W layers of the multilayer.
