X-ray emission from a compact diode consisting of a sharp edged cathode and flat anode of copper and lead, energized by simple capacitor discharge is reported. With a sewing machine needle cathode, and lead target, the generation efficiency upto 0.4% is obtained. The efficiency is expected to enhance further with the increase in discharge energy, charging voltage and reducing the parasitic inductance.
