Flash X-ray diffraction (FXD) study was performed during shock-compression by using the Blumlein FX source and an image intensifier. The dimension of this Blumlein body is approximately 6 m in length and 0.2 m in diameter. The electric pulse is 80 nsec wide but the real X-ray pulse is estimated to have a width of a few 10 nsec. The optimum condition of electrode dimensions for X-ray radiation was determined. The delay and jitter to trigger the FX source were also determined to synchronize the X-ray pulse pre-cisely with the arrival of the shock front. FXD patterns of LiF during shock-compression have been obtained up to 50 GPa.
