Paper Abstract

In this article we describe the project of a Modern Flash Radiography System being constructed by our Institute. Its main characters are: (1) The Marx Generator for nanosecond pulse has modular construction, similar to products of Hewlett-Packard Company of American, to improve the stability. (2) The inductance of the Marx circuit has been reduced, so the output voltage of this Flash Radiography System will be raised and its volume will be reduced. (3) Multi-stage triggers have been used, which will extend the trigger range of gap switch. (4) Flash X-ray Tube with multi-tip explosive cathode have been manufactured, it will improve dose and life of Flash X-ray Tube. The performances of this improved equipment will catch up with and partially surpass the performances of products of Hewlett-Packard Company.
