Bremsstrahlung / Braking radiation

# Which of the following interactions is responsible for the creating of Bremsstrahlung / Braking radiation?
A. Electrons falling from the K shell to the J shell
B. Interaction of electrons with electrons
C. Conversion of photons into electrons
D. Interaction of electrons with nuclei


The correct answer is D. Interaction of electrons with nuclei.

Bremsstrahlung radiation is created when
high-speed electrons interact with the
Tungsten nuclei at the target.

The fast-moving electron loses kinetic
energy when it interacts with the nuclei,
converting the lost kinetic energy into a
photon.
