Claim of US Patent No. 10,433,410

1. An X-ray generation apparatus, comprising:an X-ray tube;
a drive circuit that drives the X-ray tube;
a voltage generation circuit that generates an electron acceleration voltage applied to the X-ray tube; and
a control unit that communicates with the drive circuit, wherein
at least the X-ray tube, the drive circuit, and the voltage generation circuit are arranged inside a storage container filled with an insulating oil,
at least a part of a path connecting the drive circuit and the control unit is formed of an optical fiber cable arranged inside the storage container, and
the optical fiber cable has electric field mitigation means for suppressing an electric field occurring due to a potential difference between the drive circuit and the control unit from locally concentrating along a longitudinal direction of the optical fiber cable.
