Paper Abstract

To use time resolved X-UV imaging and deduce quantitative results, one needs a calibration of the instruments, in our case X-UV microscopes and X-ray streak camera photocathodes. In a first part, we present the laser used to create the X-ray source. In a second part, we give briefly the caracteristics of the source. Finally, the methods of relative calibration using X-ray photodiodes are presented. We discuss the association of multilayered mirrors and thin foil filters in order to maintain the reflectivity of the system inside the specific reflectivity of the mirrors. In conclusion, we present the different uses of this plasma source.
