SAI has investigated the feasibility of performing an x-ray attenuation measurement to determine the time-dependent density and composition of material in a pipe through which a multikilobar air shock is driven. A flash x-ray system will be able to generate adequate signal levels in direct viewing solid state detectors and in scintillator-photomultipliers observing irradiated fluorescers. The major problem is the design of a line-of-sight protection system which can adequately withstand kilobar pressures. A minimal experimental effort on Hybla Gold verified both adequately low background levels and detector survivability for the required few milliseconds. Author
