Abstract: Over the last years, the liquid-metal-jet technology has developed from prototypes into fully operational and stable X-ray tubes running in many labs over the world. Key applications include X-ray diffraction and scattering, but recently several publications have also shown very impressive X-ray computed tomography results using the liquid-metal-jet anode technology, especially in phase contrast imaging. To be able to benefit from the higher power-loading capability of the liquid-metal-jet anode, advanced electron optics had to be developed. Based on this advanced electron optics, a new nanofocus x-ray tube is under development. The foundation of the new nanofocus x-ray tube is the advanced electron optics, combined with a tungsten coated diamond transmission target. The new nanofocus x-ray tube is designed to reach line-spacing resolution of 150 nm.
