Abstract:

In a series of experiments, it has been determined that a simple parallel plate transmission line would behave in a predictable manner when subjected to the 13-MeV-thick target bremsstrahlung produced by the AURORA flash x-ray machine. During the experiment, the following parameters were measured current into the transmission line, current through the matched termination of the transmission line, the electric field at the bottom plate along the center of the transmission line, and a component of the magnetic field at the center of the transmission line. The experimental results were interpreted with a simple lumped parameter model of the transmission line.
