WHAT DOES X-RAY TUBE MEAN IN ENGLISH?
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.

The x-ray tube housing supports, insulates, and protects the x-ray tube insert from
the environment. Between the x-ray tube insert and housing is oil that provides
heat conduction and electrical insulation. In many radiographic x-ray tubes, ...

The triangle-shaped theoretical spectrum produced inside the x-ray tube is
attenuated by metallic structures in the tube, producing the shaded
bremsstrahlung spectrum illustrated. Characteristic x rays appear on the
spectrum as line spectra.

The typical power of a microfocus X-ray tube (in Watt) can be estimated as P[W]
≈ D[μm], where D is the diameter of the anode focal spot in microns [25, 26].
