MXU IIIa disassembled showing the Marx column, x-ray tube, and peaking gap.
Low-voltage end of the Marx column showing the field distortion switch, spark-gap switches, and the midplane bias resistors (the two dark rectangles).
Cross section of the x-ray tube and the turbo pump.
Photograph of the assembled x-ray source.
Equivalent circuit of the Marx generator and the current feed coupling.
Model of the x-ray diode showing the plasma cathode expanding toward the conical anode with velocity with its width represented by the independent parameter .
Comparison of (a) the calculated diode current and (c) the calculated voltage with (b) the measured current and (d) the measured voltage.
Extrapolated width of the plasma cathode showing pinch at 35 ns.
Pinhole photograph of the x-ray emission from the anode which shows a ring of intense x-ray emission near the base of the anode. The photograph of the anode shows a surface depression ring resulting from sputtering.
Four-channel time resolved x-ray detector configured for wide band energy measurement using thin metal foil filters.
Optical filtration of the slow and fast components of the scintillator emission.
X-ray energy distribution calculated from the simulated cathode current and AK voltage.
Apparatus used to record bullet passage through human cadaver legs.
Flash radiographs of 7.62 mm caliber bullets passing through the soft tissue behind the femurs and the subsequent cavity growth.
Cavity images recorded at times after the bullets passed the femurs of (a) 1500 μs, (b) 1650 μs, and (c) 5169 μs.
(a) Schematic of the dual-energy film cassette, and the two images recorded by (b) the front film and (c) the back film.
