Title: X-Ray Absorption Imaging of High-Pressure Lighting Plasmas
Published: April 01, 2005
Abstract: X-ray absorption has been used to image the distribution of Hg in high-pressure arc lamps used for lighting (Curry, Sansonetti, and Wang, in progress). Here, several images are presented showing the analytic transformation of raw x-ray data into an image of the Hg vapor density in a cylindrically symmetric arc.
