Abstract:

Over the past dozen years or so there have been significant advances in electron accelerators designed specifically for radiography of hydrodynamic experiments. Accelerator technology has evolved to accommodate the radiographers continuing quest for multiple images in time and space. Improvements in electron beam quality have resulted in smaller radiographic spot sizes for better resolution, while higher radiation dose now provides improved penetration of large, dense objects. Inductive isolation and acceleration techniques have played a key role in these advances.
