Paper Abstract

DIXI utilizes pulse-dilation technology to achieve x-ray imaging with temporal gate times below 10 ps. The longitudinal magnetic eld used to guide the electrons during the dilation process results in a warped image, similar to an optical distortion from a lens. Since the front end, where x-rays are converted into electrons at the beginning of the magnetic eld, determines the temporal resolution these distortions in uence the temporal width of the images at the back end, where it is captured. Here we discuss the measurements and methods used to reverse the magnetic warp e ect in the DIXI data. The x-ray measurements were conducted using the COMET laser facility at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
