Paper Abstract

An x-ray streak tube (XRST) for soft x-ray (0.1 - 10 keV) research and a streak camera with the XRST as a part of it are described. The streak tube is attached to a radiation source chamber, operating at 1 Pa pressure, via a pumping-out device with an ion pump, which provides operating pressure of 10-4 Pa in the streak tube. The pumping-out speed is 6 1/s. The pumping-out device has an inspection window through which changeable Au, CsI and CuI photocathodes and a cassette with a film (which separates the volume of the radiation source chamber from that of the streak tube) are installed into the streak tube. Production technology of these photocathodes and their characteristics are discussed in the paper. The streak camera operates in remote and manual control modes and has discrete sweep duration values in the 5 - 500 ns range. The image from the output screen of the streak camera is recorded by a contact type camera or a TV read-out system. The possibility of sweep duration values calibration directly before making measurements is provided in the streak camera.
