Paper Abstract

Building diagnostics for characterizing 1-ps duration ultra-high brightness laser sources and their interaction with solid targets is a very complex task for the streak camera community. Generally, single-shot, 1-ps time resolution, large-dynamic range instrumentation is beyond current capabilities. In this paper, we discuss some of the limitations of present day streak camera technologies. The difficulty of the task is illustrated with some preliminary x-ray streak data from the interaction of a pair of picosecond laser pulses with a Cu target at 2 x 1015 W/cm2.
