Paper Abstract

Extremely short and intense bursts of X-rays, light or electrons can be obtained from a recently developed electron accelerator. Thus high-speed photography is made more versatile since the type of radiation which best portrays a particular event can be selected. The basic system, from which the electron beam can be extracted for direct use or converted into an intense pulse of X-rays by bremsstrahlung, was described at the 8th Congress of High-Speed Photography; since that time light generating capability has been added by the development of semiconductor targets which convert the electron beam energy into Super Radiant Light (SRL).
