Abstract

A new design of an X-ray source with a radiation energy controllably varying from 2 to 130 keV and a radiation intensity exceeding >10 -5 photon/e-/sr is suggested. The source is based on parametric X-ray radiation (PXR) generated by moderately relativistic electrons in an original geometry. In this geometry, kinematic bunching of PXR reflections is used, which makes it possible to increase the intensity of the source. A model to calculate the PXR characteristics that takes into account absorption of radiation, beam parameters, multiple scattering, and energy loss is developed. The monochromaticity of the source lines is estimated.
