There was an excellent article documenting the X-Ray intensity from one =
of these tubes. Someone had placed dosimeters at various distances in a =
grid around one of these and mapped the radiation flux.

I've lost my reference for that article. I think it was linked here: =
Deflection of an electron beam | PIRT - Physics Instructional Resource =
Team

Does anyone have that?
