Paper Abstract

We present here the P552 soft X-ray streak tube which is derived from the P500-P550 X-ray tube from RTC 1. To meet the requirements of X-ray diagnostics in high power laser interaction experiments performed at Centre d' Etudes de Limeil-Valenton some modifications were carried out to allow an easier control of the photocathode and the insertion of an optical fiducial of the laser pulse. We describe the main features of the whole device. This tube associated with a Thomson 2 TSN 505 camera has been used in laser plasma experiments and we present here some results obtained on the PHFBUS laser facility at CEL-V.
