Paper Abstract

We present the results obtained during work on the recording equipment to be used in studies of the space-time structure of X-ray radiation from a short-lived Z-pinch plasma on the facility SIGNAL. The report contains description of the streak camera, its main characteristics, and methods for calibration of elements of the X-ray optical scheme. Results of experiments with high-current discharges (about 200 kA, 50 ns) up to 10 mm long show that X-ray radiation is emitted from separate small `hot' spots (micropinches), light emission of which is considerably lower than the discharge time.
