The electron accelerator generates electrons using a cathode, which are negatively charged.These are controlled by a positively charged grid and accelerated in a vacuum. Subsequently, the electrons appear through a slightly µm thicker titanium film and meet the material to be irradiated.
The electrons decelerate after exiting the vacuum to the atmosphere (slowing-down radiation). This produces X-rays which are screened by a lead shielding on the EBH unit and on the material to be irradiated.
In this way, the electrons meet the material and link it.
