Paper Abstract

X-ray transmission photocathodes are limited in sensitivity at soft x-ray energies (⪅100 eV) due to absorption in the photocathode substrate. We report on the design of a streak camera incorporating a reflection mode photocathode which will extend the detectable spectral range through the VUV. The slot aperture in the accelerating electrode of our standard large format x-ray streak cameras provides a clear access window to the photocathode. This instrument will be used to detect the soft x-ray spectrum as dispersed by an x-ray transmission grating.
