Abstract
Gated X-ray microchannel plate detectors and images have become very useful and reliable diagnostics on Nova. We have now better characterized these stripline instruments with respect to gain, temporal and spatial resolution. Pulse shapers (2 kV - 100 ps) and improvements in pulse propagation allow us to gate x-ray events at 100 ps. We describe new ideas in diagnostics and new methods of improving temporal resolution (<100 ps).
