Paper Abstract

Streak cameras are now currently used as a basic tool in the diagnostics instrumentation or laser-plasma interaction studies. We have recently shown at the 15th congress which was held in San Diego the properties of the the P 650 soft X-ray cameral having both optimized spatial and temporal resolutions (16-20 1p.mm-1, 3 to 5 ps). During 1983-1984 we have continued our efforts to improve and extend the performances of these diagnostics. New developments include : - the used of a cylindrical mirror with the P 650 X-ray streak camera, in order to obtain a streaked soft X-ray imaging device which will be describe with some more details in the following paper. - study of a new X-ray streak camera using a modified image converter tube P 750 X with a best lamellar optics. - enhancement of photocathode sensitivity by testing new materials. - development of new photocathode-tube window arrangement in order to record both laser and X-ray signals. - another important improvement in the same field is the C.C.D. readout which is presented in other papers.
