Abstract
THE DEVELOPMENT OF X-RAY TUBE ANODES OF GREATLY INCREASED BRIGHTNESS IS PROPOSED BY APPLICATION OF AN ENHANCED HEAT REMOVAL TECHNOLOGY WHICH WILL BE IMPLEMENTED THROUGH THE DEVELOPMENT OF MICRO-FABRICATED HEATPIPES. THE PRINCIPAL EFFORT OF THIS RESEARCH WILL BE THE CONSTRUCTION OF A (PRINCIPALLY COMPUTATIONAL) MODEL TO DESCRIBE THE OPERATION OF THESE NEW STRUCTURES. THE MODEL WILL BE VALIDATED BY EXPERIMENTAL TEST AND THEN USED TO PREDICT WHICH AREAS OF ANODE OPERATION WOULD MOST BENEFIT FROM AN APPLICATION OF THE MICRO-FABRICATED HEAT PIPE TECHNOLOGY IN A PHASE II RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT EFFORT.
