Ultra Fast X-Ray Streak Camera

  • L. W. Coleman

A unique ultrafast x—ray sensitive streak camera with a time resolution of 50 psec has been built and operated. A 100 Å thick gold photocathode on a beryllium vacuum window is used in a modified commercial image converter tube. The x—ray streak camera has been used in experiments to observe time resolved emission from laser—produced plasmas.
