X-Ray Absorption Imaging of High-Pressure Lighting Plasmas

Published

Author(s)

John J. Curry, Craig J. Sansonetti

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.
