Fundamentals of X-Ray Generation

This video explains one of the earliest method of X-ray generation from the heating of filaments in a high vacuum and the usage of high voltages.

The act of getting electrons from heating a filament in high/partial vacuum is called "Thermionic Emissions" where the electrons in the filament is being "boiled" off from the filament metal due high temperature.
