Paper Abstract

We demonstrated that the shot-to-shot timing jitter of a streak camera is reduced to 30 fs when it is triggered by a standard kilohertz laser with 1.2% RMS fluctuation. Such small jitter was obtained by improving the response time of deflection plates and the rise-time of a ramp pulse generated by a photoconductive switch, and by operating the photoconductive switch at the optimum working condition. The temporal resolution of the x-ray streak camera operating in accumulation mode is better than 600 femtosecond that is not limited by the timing jitter.
