Re: x-ray with small Tesla coil as driver

This effect doesn't occur in all vacuum tubes --- just those with very high
vac.   The electrons accelerate faster in a shorter mean free path and
therefore collide with the glass walls with more energy.  Higher velocity
means the electrons fly past the outer orbitals to innermost orbitals.  They
collide with interior electrons in the glass walls, and "pump" them up to
higher orbits.  When they drop back to their lower orbits they release a
large amount of energy.  Instead of photons from simple outer orbital
pump/collisions, the higher energy electrons release X-radiation as they
race back to their original orbitals.
