Paper Abstract

A PLZT electrooptic filter is being used to control the intensity of light transmitted to a video camera from samples undergoing pulsed electron beam thermal testing. This electron beam test system is part of a materials development program for fusion energy applications. During the testing, sample surface temperatures may reach 3000°C and the intense light from these pulses is potentially damaging to the camera. The use of a variable density electrooptic filter prevents this damage and provides improved image quality during rapid changes of surface temperature.
