Instruments for materials research in dynamic processes
What could you see with our technology?
Scandiflash flash X-ray systems generate an extremely short exposure time X-ray pulse of 20 ns that enables the study of dynamic events in excess of 10 km/s allowing you to see the nearly impossible. Our instruments can be used in a diversity of fields ranging from collision & fluid mechanics to geology to test beds for large-scale facility experiments – like free electron laser setups.
Space and Defense
The instruments in Scandiflash flash X-ray systems can capture high velocity and hypervelocity impacts of materials colliding with objects like space debris traveling in excess of 10 km/s where the materials vaporize on impact. The results give vital insight about material deformation.
Electronics and electrical breakdown studies
Our X-ray imaging can monitor events inside closed constructions such as high-voltage electronics, so you can perform breakdown studies in environments not accessible with optical methods.
Service & Support
Our flash X-ray systems exist to help you succeed with your research. Our team is here to support you with installation, maintenance, troubleshooting and training. You can take advantage of one of our recommended service contracts, order spare parts and get all the upgrades you need by simply reaching out.
Flexible flash X-ray for your research
for high-speed imaging
Scandiflash flash X-ray systems enable up to 8 images with individual time stamps at a frame rate of 1,000,000 fps per system, and multiple systems can operate in parallel. The extremely short exposure times can freeze dynamic events in the form of X-ray images allowing you to see the nearly impossible – penetrating everything from smoke to several centimeters of steel.

Robust precision your research can depend on
Our X-ray tubes are virtually indestructible. We’ve built them to withstand your tough environments.
Get extended performance time with large anodes or extra sharp images with smaller anodes… it’s your choice.
Change them yourself.
You can hold it
Portability can make the difference in getting what you need for your research. One person can easily configure a setup in the lab or in the field.
30mm steel penetration
Scandiflash 450 kVp Flash X-ray systems can penetrate up to 30 mm of steel from a distance of 2.5 meters
Flexible solid-core high voltage cables connect our pulsers and X-ray tubes – we don’t use liquid.
Scandiflash flash X-ray tubes feature a 1mm focal spot size giving you crisp, sharp images, even at short source-to-object distances.
Fast exposure times
Scandiflash flash X-ray systems feature an incredibly fast 20 nanosecond pulse width that stops motion for extremely sharp radiographs.
1-minute charging time
Scandiflash flash X-ray pulsers are Marx generators with a recharging time of less than one minute. Why wait longer than you have to?
Scandiflash flash X-ray systems are easy to maintain with user serviceable parts. You can replace the anodes and cathodes in our X-ray heads for long life and years of reliable research.
