Claim of US Patent No. 10,880,984

1. A magnetic apparatus, comprising:a scanning electromagnet that redirects a beam of charged particles;
a vacuum chamber that prevents the atmosphere from interfering with the charged particles; and
a parallelizing permanent magnet array for parallelizing the beam of charged particles including any uniformly diverging beam, wherein the parallelizing permanent magnet array is located proximate to a target comprising a Bremsstrahlung target or an object that is being irradiated and is further located within or outside the vacuum chamber, wherein a magnetic field of the scanning electromagnet is variable to produce all angles necessary to sweep the beam of charged particles across the target and wherein the parallelizing permanent magnet array is configured from a magnetic material that does not require an electric current.
