Nanosecond hard x‐ray source for time resolved x‐ray diffraction studies Academic Article uri icon


  • We describe an optically driven x-ray diode which can generate nanosecond, hard x-ray pulses at a repetition rate of 300 Hz, with high stability and a synchronization capability of 1-2 ns. The system is suitable for nanosecond time resolved diffraction experiments. Using this system diffraction patterns from liquids and polycrystalline solids were recorded. © 1995 American Institute of Physics.
