In recent years a group of Soviet researchers has been developing a series of high-power flash X-ray and fast-electron-beam generators. Of particular interest is their application of high pressures to distilled water used as the dielectric to enhance the performance characteristics of the machines. The Soviet designs are compared to the U.S. effort, represented by the Hermes-II flash X-ray generator developed by the Sandia Laboratories. 89 pp. Ref.
