Abstract:

Computer codes were developed to determine X-ray filtersolid state detector response curves and to reduce filter-detector oscilloscope trace data obtained from pulsed plasma devices. The first of these codes also generates theoretical X-ray spectra and calculates anticipated detector outputs to aid in unfolding spectra. Eleven Ross filter pairs are also presented which, when used with silicon PIN detectors, give time resolved X-ray spectral information in the energy range from 5 to 67 keV. Author
