Plasma Focus (PF) devices as well as other similar pulsed discharge devices requires a variety of diagnostics for their proper control and optimization, including the voltage between electrodes, the time derivative of the discharge current, detection of X-rays and neutron emissions, and pulsed laser images (Shadow, Schlieren, interferograms). This article discusses the problem of the time reference of all these outputs and proposes specific techniques for synchronizing them based on sound physical grounds. The foundations of synchronization criterion are verified in several experiments on PF devices.
