Abstract
The interpretation of experiments in pulsed laser-matter interaction requires the dynamic recording of phenomenon involved in the plasma created by the high density of energy concentrated in the target. Since some years, observation and measurements in the X spectrum, and more particularly in the 1-10 keV range at a first time, has became of unquestionable interest either to study radiation self emitted by the plasmas or to X-ray it with an external X-ray source. With these applications in view we have been lead to develop space and time resolved X-ray detectors with time resolution in the picosecond range. In this paper we present a survey of our successive steps in the design and operation of streak cameras with more and more performances in terms of spatial and temperal resolution (3 to 30 ps at 15 1p.mm-1). A large family of image tubes and cameras are described which have been studied and made by collaboration with Thomson-CSF and Laboratoire d'Electronique et de Physique Appliquees (LEP). We also present the range of cameras which are now under development at Limeil, with a spectral response in soft X-rays (.2 to 2 keV). Finally we present the results obtained today, in two dimensional (framing) imagery with the 300ps planar shutter tube from LEP.
