Paper Abstract

An x-ray streak camera with a time resolution of ~30 ps is described. CsI and Au were used as the photocathode with Parylene substrate for the camera, making the camera sensitive to x-rays from 100 to 10,000 eV photon energy range. The transmission of the substrate and the quantum efficiencies of the photocathodes have been measured. X-ray pulse down to 33 ps half width has been measured with 8 1p/mm dynamic spatial resolution, 12 mm slit length on photocathode and ~32 dynamic range. The jitter of the avalanche transistor sweep circuit is smaller than ±150 ps. Some primary results of laser fusion studies have been obtained with this camera and pinhole imaging system.
