Abstract

The PXS is developed for calibrating microdosimeters and testing television-type detectors (TVTDs) and quality check of tetramethylsilane (TMS) samples after purification from electronegative impurities. The PXS design and block diagram are described. The pulsed X-ray source based on a solid-state discharger with an advanced system for triggering the controlled discharger and external devices, which have minimum noise characteristics, is described.
