The final goal of this project is to produce a novel x ray generator for use in a high speed scanner for cargo inspection. The speed requirement is too fast to allow mechanical rotation of a conventional x ray tube. Instead, the x ray source position must be moved by electrical means within a stationary generator. Our approach generates x ray photons from electrons that hit a moving spot on a long anode.
