The spectra are displayed with a logarithmic intensity axis which makes determination of the Duane-Hunt limit straightforward by extrapolating the high energy continuum to its intersection with the energy axis at 0 intensity.
When charging occurs, it should affect the higher photon energy wi ndows near the Duane-Hunt limit first.
