Application of Plasma Focus Device in Fast Industrial Radiography
This paper deals with application of the plasma focus (PF) devices in fast industrial radiography. The results of radiography of a fan unit in both static and rotating states are presented. To do this, an X-ray video camera and the hard X-ray emission due to a PF device have been used. Moreover, the gray levels of the radiograph have been employed to find out the average effective X-ray energy in radiography of the rotating fan.
