Paper Abstract

This paper presents the construction details of the X-ray frame cameras and the gating pulse generating systems applied to the dynamic supplying of open microchannel plate-based devices. Presented cameras are equipped with digital readout and are able to acquire one-frame or four-frame images of plasma originating in plasma-focus phenomena with minimal estimated X-ray gate time of about 800 ps. Some examples of the results obtained by means of the nanosecond X-ray frame cameras, are given in the final part of the paper.
