An accumulative x-ray streak camera with sub-600-fs temporal resolution and 50-fs timing jitter



We demonstrated that the shot-to-shot timing jitter of an x-ray streak camera was reduced to close to 50 fs when it was triggered by a standard kilohertz laser with 1.2% rms pulse energy fluctuation. This was achieved by improving the response time of deflection plates and the rise time of the ramp pulse generated by a photoconductive switch, and by operating the photoconductive switch at optimum conditions. Furthermore, after reducing the angular distribution of electron bunch, the temporal resolution of the x-ray streak camera operating in accumulation mode was measured to be better than 600 fs. © 2003 American Institute of Physics.
