X-ray contact microradiography using a laser-produced plasma pulsed x-ray source provides several advantages for imaging dynamic biological systems. We have applied such an x-ray system in the study of silica deposition in living leaf blades of Zia and the developmental morphology of maize inflorescence. Such a study provides a means for the selection of high silica varieties in crop plants, which has been correlated with high resistance to insects and fungi. Real-time x-ray imaging may be obtained using a shadow projection method. For this purpose, a shadow projection microscope was constructed by modifying a scanning electron microscope for real-time imaging. Preliminary results in the study of floral development in maize will be presented. In addition, implementation of this real-time imaging system to the laser plasma x-ray system will be discussed.
