Paper Abstract

An imaging camera that is used with x-ray radiography systems in high explosive experiments has been built and fielded. The camera uses a 40 mm diameter Micro-Channel Plate Intensifier (MCPI) for optical gain and photographic film for image recording. In the normal location of the x- ray film pack, a scintillating screen is placed instead. The camera system views the screen and records the image. The sensitivity of the MCPI to light makes the camera design sensitive to small details that a film pack does not need to consider. The x-ray image recording system was designed and built for situations where the film pack of the x-ray shadowgraph is not retrievable after the experiment. The system has been used in a number of experiments.
