Abstract : The patent describes an apparatus using the Compton back-scattered technique to produce an intense unidirectional pulsed source of low-energy X-rays. The X-rays are produced by the Compton back-scattering of a beam of low-energy photons with an oppositely-directed, high-energy, high-intensity electron beam.
