Paper Abstract

Advanced in solid state detectors and dense scintillators make radiographic cameras competitive with film in applications where the SNR is dominated by quantum statistics. In addition, these cameras offer the advantage of sub-microsecond time-gating required by present and future radiographic facilities (e.g. PHERMEX, and DARHT). We compare theoretical considerations in camera systems incorporating lens, and fiber coupling to MCPs, and CCDs. We also present Monte-Carlo blur calculations for various candidate scintillators and discuss the relative merits of the PHERMEX camera design.
