Abstract
DTRA requires reliable X-ray sources to irradiate test objects for customers. One key component of test object irradiation is reliable radiation diagnostics to measure the dose and dose-rate to test objects. Current radiation diagnostics possess unacceptable levels of variation. Alameda Applied Sciences Corp proposes the use of a dense plasma focus device as a flat field X-ray calibration source capable of a bright source of soft X-ray radiation.
