Bombarding a Go-Pro with X-Rays
posted January 14 2015 20:29.58 by Giorgos Lazaridis




This GoPro Hero 3+ camera survived the radiation to tell us what it saw! The camera was placed inside a 1/4" thick lead box with a 1" thick, 50% lead glass window and a 1/4" thick lead plate above the camera box to provide shielding from direct irradiation from the beam. And then it was sent through an industrial irradiator while viewing plastic and mineral samples.



The irradiation facility is the Mercury Plastics NeoBeam facility which is used for cross linking plastics. The accelerator can produce a 5MeV, 20mA electron beam which is scanned over a moving cart.






Bonus video: Here is a sheet of acrylic being bombarded with the X-rays as the mighty GoPro films.
