Paper Abstract

We present data characterizing an x-ray streak camera which uses a microchannel plate as a photocathode. The microchannel plate provides good sensitivity to soft x-ray photons and adjustable gain in addition to one dimensional spatial imaging. The streak camera was used in conjunction with a high sensitivity CCD camera and a computer data acquisition system. The resulting detection system has single photon sensitivity, a time resolution of better than 200 psec, and a dynamic range exceeding 103.
