1 February 1989 Development Of A Long Pulse Radiography System For Explosive Ordnance Testing
Author Affiliations +
A long pulse radiography system is under construction at the Mission Research Corporation (MRC) facility and consists of an intense X-ray source and camera. The bremsstrahlung pulser is designed to operate at 500 kVp, 1000 A, for 25 psec. A dose rate of 1.84 x 105 Rads/sec is expected at a location 1 meter from the vacuum diode. The generation of X-rays is accomplished through the deposition of <10 kJ of electron beam energy in a tungsten target anode. Ablation of the anode material will require periodic replacement of modular components. The X-ray camera uses a scintillator, a gating image intensifier (MCP), and a rotating mirror assembly to transfer the visible output light to the film plane.
