Abstract : The development of plasma pinch and other flash x-ray devices has created the need for a system capable of measuring the spectra of 50 nsec x-ray pulses. A Ross filter system that measured both the integrated and time resolved x-ray spectra from several plasma pinch devices is described. Filters made from readily available materials were used in conjunction with both film and solid state detectors to measure x-ray spectra between 5.46 and 115.6 keV. (Author)
