Paper Abstract

High resolution x-ray streak camera built around bilamellar tubes have been developed for a long time in CEL-V2. The C850X camera is the last step of those studies. We describe here the different versions of the camera; we also present the experimental results (temporal resolution approximately equals 2 ps in conjunction with a dynamic spatial resolution > 15 1p/mm) obtained in ENSTA on a 60 fs UV laser, which match our theoretical predictions. The improvement of the C850X electronics have also been implemented on C750X (the P750X tube of the camera has the same structure as that of C850X, but its deflection plates are replaced by a 50(Omega) meander stripline, which allows higher sweep speeds). We present the status of that development, the improvements accomplished on the sweep circuit, and the first results obtained with that device.
