Paper Abstract

We have developed a spark-gap system which permits a Cranz-Schardin type camera to be used for the recording of high speed events. A Cranz-Schardin camera is a high speed photographic facility which consists of a multiple spark generator used as a short-duration light source, an optical system which gives multiple shadowgraphs of the object on a still photographic plate, and an electronic control unit which provides delays before and between successive frames. In applying the Cranz-Schardin method to recording light emitting high speed phenomena, a principal problem has been the lack of reliable intense light sources with very short radiating times and restricted radiating areas. At the same time it is desirable to increase the illumination power as far as possible.
