Sealed tubes - Coolidge type common - Cu, Mo, Fe, Cr, W, Ag Ka = (2 Ka1 + Ka2)/3 X-ray sources Sealed tubes - Coolidge type common - Cu, Mo, Fe, Cr, W, Ag intensity limited by cooling requirements (22.5kW)

(~99% of energy input converted to heat) X-ray sources Intensity changes with take-off angle But resolution decreases with take-off angle
