Abstract : Energetic electron beam assisted x-ray generator having a plasma generator and an electron source interconnected by a sealed pinch tube and control means for the plasma generator, electron source, and said sealed pinch tube to cause the electron source to be focused on the plasma from the plasma generator and to cause the electron source to be transmitted to the plasma of the plasma generator at the appropriate time to cause a maximum amount of soft x-rays to be produced by the interaction of the outputs of the plasma generator and the electron source when said plasma has been seeded with appropriate high Z-material.
