Abstract
WE PROPOSE TO INVESTIGATE A NOVEL CONCPET FOR A FLUOROGRAPHIC CONVERTER FOR USE IN REAL TIME RADIOGRAPHY IN THE 50 KEV ENERGY RANGE. THE FIBER OPTIC X-RAY SCINTILLATOR (FOXS) IS BASED ON THE INCORPORATION OF A HIGH EFFICIENCY SCINTILLATOR WITH FIBER OPTICS. LIGHT CAN BE COUPLED OUT OF THE FOXS WITH EXTREMELY HIGH EFFICIENCY AND WITH LIGHT CLOUD SPREAD AN ORDER OF MAGNITUDE SMALLER THAN WITH CONVENTIONAL SCREENS. MONTE-CARLO SIMULATIONS INDICATE FOXS WILL HAVE SPATIAL RESOLUTION, BRIGHTNESS, EFFICIENCY AND CONTRAST SUPERIOR TO THAT OBTAINED WITH CONVENTIONAL X-RAY SCREENS. WE WILL INVESTIGATE PROBLEM AREAS AND TECHNIQUES ASSOCIATED WITH FABRICATION OF THE FOXS. SMALL SCALE LABORATORY TESTS WILL BE CONDUCTED TO ASSIST IN DETERMINING A POTENTIAL FABRICATION PROCEDURE.
