Multi-MeV Flash Radiography in Shock Physics Experiments: Specific Assemblages of Monolithic Scintillating Crystals for Use in CCD-Based Imagers

Figure 6

Schematic representation of the optical coupling of a CCD camera to a monolithic scintillator. The voxel (gray in the sketch) is the elementary volume viewed in the scintillator by a CCD pixel. Its size specifically depends on the refractive index (n) of the scintillator, the angular aperture (α) of the objective (at the object plan), and the size of the CCD pixel.
