Paper Abstract

After a brief review of the research and development activities on the control of the time structure of x-ray beams conducted at the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility, we present first results of the performance of an optical chopper based on a vibrating crystal device. With this system we were able to select time windows from about 200 ns to infinite with a repetition rate of 20 kHz and the high throughput provided by the high reflectivity of perfect single crystals.
