We have demonstrated the first optically driven X-ray source based on carbon nanotube (CNT) photocathodes. It is a compact dual X-ray source and the two sources are accurately and independently controlled with two laser diodes illuminating the photocathodes. Thanks to the emission stability, high quality images have been obtained. This dual source provides two images from two different viewing angles. This concept can be easily extended to multiple X-ray sources. Associated with linear or 2D… CONTINUE READING
