Paper Abstract

The dynamic processes of many very fast phenomena are obscured by secondary by-products of the event. Consequently investigation by conventional photographic techniques cannot be satisfactorily employed. To record these events cine x-ray systems have been used with considerable success penetrating the smoke, plasma, and dust which otherwise would totally obscure detailed recording of the process. As more and more very fast dynamic processes are subject to critical investigation effective photographic based recording requires exposures considerably less than those currently available. By combining nano second flash x-ray sources and the Imacon 792 framing camera it has been possible to sequentially record events with velocities up to 8 kilometers/second and still maintain an effective common viewpoint.
