WHAT DOES X-RAY TUBE MEAN IN ENGLISH?

X-ray tube

X-ray tube

An X-ray tube is a vacuum tube that produces X-rays. They are used in X-ray generators. X-rays are part of the electromagnetic spectrum, an ionizing radiation with wavelengths shorter than ultraviolet light. X-ray tubes evolved from experimental Crookes tubes with which X-rays were first discovered in the late 19th century, by Wilhelm Röntgen and the availability of this controllable source of X-rays created the field of radiography, the imaging of opaque objects with penetrating radiation. X-ray tubes are also used in CAT scanners, airport luggage scanners, X-ray crystallography, and for industrial inspection. Coolidge X-ray tube, from around 1917. The heated cathode is on the left, and the anode is right. The X-rays are emitted downwards.

definitionDefinition of X-ray tube in the English dictionary

The definition of X-ray tube in the dictionary is an evacuated tube containing a metal target onto which is directed a beam of electrons at high energy for the generation of X-rays.
