Advanced Design Experimentation & Processing

Demountable Chamber 1

PMI’s demountable chamber is an advanced method of performing x-ray source design experiments and high-vacuum parts processing, providing design validation, shorter design-to-manufacture cycles and reduced development costs. Operational features include:

  • 140kVDC operation
  • Evaluation of cathode beam optics/focal spot size control
  • Grid control electron beam modulation
  • Measure x-ray output conventional target vs. PMI-patented V-notch
  • Measure beam size/filtration
  • Experimentation capability of heat removal and thermal measurement
  • Rotating bearing/stator drive experimentation
  • Multiple x-ray source experimentation
  • Process and outgas x-ray target assemblies
  • Life test bearing systems.
