Paper Abstract

This paper presents a progress update with the development of a distributed x-ray source. We present a high level summary of the source integration, simulation and experimental results, as well as challenges in electron beam focusing, beam current gating, voltage isolation, and anode technologies. We present focal spot measurements, x-ray images and a summary of our distributed x-ray source concept.
