Spray-based liquid atomization and liquid mixing is critical for development of efficient combustors and drug delivery systems as well as multiple coating-related applications. While optical methods allow characterization of low density regions of sprays, the scattering of optical photons hinders the characterization of a dense core. Unlike optical photons, higher-energy X-ray photons have the capability to penetrate and image the core structure of sprays. Here we characterized temporal and spatial resolution of an X-Ray imaging system based on a commercially available tube source with an anode size of 0.6 mm. For high-speed imaging, a phosphor screen in combination with ...
