The essential role of image converter cameras for high speed diagnostics is illustrated by a variety of new techniques and applications. Large calibre projectiles can be recorded in flight by sunlight, eliminating the need for additional illumination. Projectiles leaving the muzzle, and on impact, can be recorded using an X ray technique under conditions impossible for conventional photography. Improvement in frame geometry and resolution is illus-trated by photoelastic crack propagation studies. Subnanosecond techniques include development of a picosecond X ray camera with spectral sensitivity into the U.V. and include application to laser fusion studies. Also described are a new-approach to single shot sub-nanosecond photography and application of a continuous circular scanning camera to record visible radiation generated by a particle accelerator.
