Abstract:

to High speed x-ray imaging is extremely important for several military and civilian applications such as analyzing ballistic impacts, imaging exploding land mines, medical computed tomography, and non-destructive testing. A lack of high-resolutiondetection systems with large active imaging areas and a microsecond time resolution is currently the major limiting factor in these important applications.To address limitations of the existing instrumentation we propose to develop a novel x-ray imaging system based on a high resolution, high efficiency, fast decay time scintillator screen optically coupled to a new ultra-fast CCD camera. A speciallydesigned pulsed x-ray source will be developed in conjunction with the imaging system. Based on the successful Phase I work, the proposed project will be aimed at developing a prototype system capable of acquiring a set of high resolution x-ray imageswith microsecond time resolution.
