Abstract : The patent describes an electromagnetic implosion X-ray source having a thin cylindrical metal foil supported on spaced electrodes within an evacuated chamber. The electrode system is connected through a switch to a capacitor bank power supply with low inductance leads and with the average electrical impedance of the power supply. An X-ray radiation path is provided between the X-ray source and a sample holder attached to the X-ray source.
