Paper Abstract

A novel subpicosecond x-ray streak camera (called PX1) was developed by the INRS group for subpicosecond time resolved spectroscopy in x rays and X-UV range. Using the PX1 camera, we have measured keV x-ray pulses with a 950 fs FWHM and a 850 fs rise time. The camera has also been coupled to ultrafast photoconductive switches and tested in jitter-free mode as a signal averaging detector. This instrument allows to analyze ultrafast changes in short wavelength signals with an unlimited dynamic range.
