Electron physics

Write an article on electron physics Paper must be at least 1750 words. Bremsstrahlung radiation occurs when electrons travel through a vacuum and enter a solid material to spontaneously release high energy photons which result in loss of energy and slowed speed of the electrons. The number of photon energy that is released by the electron equals to its motion or kinetic energy that is released.When the voltage that speeds up the movement of electrons from the filament to the target is increased, the speed of the electron’s increases and they have more energy thus they produce X-ray photons with high energy through Bremsstrahlung radiation. Most of the electrons prompted possess power that is enough to release X-ray photons, so the process becomes more efficient. . . . . . . . . . . . When the tungsten target is operated at three different potential differences, the results in the spectrum graph show that peak of the hump moves upwards in the left direction as the voltage is increased with the excitation lines staying in their original positions. The mountain moves up and to the left because as the voltage is increased more X-ray photons are released, which have low frequencies and high energies, and the result is that the peak of the hump shifts to the left and a lower value of the wavelength or high frequency. A change in the voltage does not affect the wavelengths. Also, when the voltage is increased while using different materials, the peak of the hump moves upwards in the left direction but along other excitation lines.

When the current flowing in the filament is altered, it changes the filament temperature, which determines the number of electrons that are emitted. Thus, a change in current does not affect the wavelength, but it increases the Intensity as shown in the graph.Scatter refers to a way of interaction between the X-rays and their atoms when X-ray photons bounce off the atoms after they have failed to be absorbed or changed in form. It is only their direction of travel that is altered

The photoelectric effect is the process by which an X-ray photon hits its atom to give up energy and release an electron from the bit. The X-ray photon is then absorbed and disappears completely. The electrons released by photoelectric effect are of beta radiation travelling at high speeds and are harmful to human tissue.
