  • an important source of x rays is synchrotron radiation. x rays are also produced in a highly evacuated glass bulb, called an x-ray tube, that contains essentially two electrodes—an anode made of platinum, tungsten, or another heavy metal of high melting point, and a cathode. when a high voltage is applied between the electrodes, streams of electrons (cathode rays) are accelerated from the cathode to the anode and produce x rays as they strike the anode. factmonster.com
