Paper Abstract

Six kinds of repetitive flash x-ray generators having hot-cathode radiation tubes with maximum repetition rates of kilohertz (kHz) to megahertz (MHz) are described. These generators were primarily designed in order to increase the repetition rate of flash x rays and to perform cine or multiple-shot radiography. The temperatures of the filament (cathode) had values of about 2000 K for increasing tube currents. Because the hot-cathode triode was quite useful for high-voltage switching with high-repetition rates, four types of generators in conjunction with the grid pulsers were developed.
