Paper Abstract

The microfocal X-ray units have an extremely small X-ray source (5-15 pm diameter) acheived by focussing an electron beam onto the side of a solid target. High resolution magnification radiographs are obtained by placing the object close to the source and the recording surface at some distance away. The advantages of this type of X-ray are described as well as its applications in industry, bio-medical research and medicine. The high resolution and magnification of the radiographs enable precise measurements to be carried out.
