Parametric X-Ray Radiation (PXR) Produced in Carbon Single Wall Nanotubes (SWNT) and Fullerites
The angular and spectral distributions as well as the energy dependence of the PXR produced by relativistic particles passing through crystalline ropes of (10,10) SWNT and fullerite single crystals are investigated. Numerical results obtained for electrons with various energies passing through oriented SWNT and fullerite under Bragg angles to superlattice and crystallographic planes, respectively, are given. Possible experiments as well as some application of such PXR beams are discussed.
