X-Ray powder spectrum is a 2D chap, like ECG, on one side we have 2 teta values and the intensity, he said.

The source on which you are targeting electron beam, based on the source the x-rays will come out, Dr. Sarma narrated. While telling about safety, he cautioned that make sure the door is closed when the beam is on and you have to pass through the cool water continuously to cool the source.
