Research Facts
In the first Coolidge tube, P/electrons were emitted from a tungsten wire filament that was itself the cathode. Named for H.D. Coolidge. The glass protrusions contain activating or regenerating devices that cause occluded gases to be liberated, thereby producing more potential electrons and softening the resultant X-ray emission. The cathode is "cupped," causing the electron beam to be focused on the target material.
