Paper Abstract

A facility for high-speed cineradiography at high energy designed to study detonic effets in framing or streak mode is operated since 1983 in VAWOURS (Commissariat a l'Energie Atomique). This facility includes two parts : a linear accelerator as a source of X photons and an opto-electronic recording system with 1 to 3 cameras depending on the observation mode (framing or streak). The linear accelerator, a travelling waves accelerator (mean energy : 45 MeV), built by CGR-MeV delivers 30 R at 1 meter for each of the three 50 ns short pulses in a 15/us period or 30 R//us during a 15/us pulse. The filling time of each section could allow, if necessary, 15 pulses of 30 to 100 fps. Three image-intensifier tubes ITT-F 4113 with variable luminous gain (50 to 500) or a streak camera CFTH-TSN 506 are used to record the images. The electronic cameras are in a shrapnel-proof mobile vessel designed by the C.E.A. This vessel can be moved along the fire table in order to be suited to different detonic experimentations.
