Abstract

X-rays are electromagnetic radiations in the wavelength region around 1Å. An X-ray tube is operated by accelerating electrons to high energy and then allowing them to strike a metallic target. Within the target, the motions of electrons are affected by the strong fields of the atomic nuclei, and the electrons are slowed or even stopped within small distances. In other words, the electrons are strongly decelerated. As a result bremsstrahlung (deceleration radiation) or continuous radiation (white radiation) is produced. It would therefore be useful to study the nature of the field of a charged particle that is in uniform motion and then decelerated.
