Paper Abstract

Rapid switching and interruption of x-ray diffraction from crystals provide interesting possibilities as fast x-ray measurement techniques. This article describes measurements that have been made on an acousto-optic x-ray shuttering device. The shuttering mechanism is provided by acoustic interruption of x-ray transmission through a low dislocation density silicon single crystal oriented for Laue geometry diffraction. A discussion is given of possible methods for the development of subnanosecond x-ray acousto-optic devices.
