Abstract

We have designed and built a 3 GHz radio-frequency cavity for use as an ultrafast streak camera to measure with 10 fs resolution the duration of electron bunches that are suitable for single-shot ultrafast electron diffraction experiments. We present our first measurements of 10 ps electron bunches and explain how we will measure sub-100 fs bunch durations.
