Ultra fast Streak Camera
The only commercial x-ray streak camera that can streak 450 spatial resolution points (18 mm slit) with a time resolution of 700 fs (measured at FWHM)


Fully integrated instrument for ultrafast high-resolution time-resolved spectroscopy from the x-rays to the infrared. They can be built in vacuum-compatible airboxes for use with the Ten Inch Manipulator (TIM) diagnostic insertion system found in large-scale laser facilities.

- Standalone instruments including an internal PC
- 450 spatial resolution units along the slit
- Averaging rate: single shot to 5 kHz
- High sensitivity fiber-optic coupled readout
- Remote-controlled over Ethernet (Web, OPC, TANGO, etc.)


AXIS-PX in airbox format for use with the Ten inch Manipulator(TIM) diagnostic insertion system.

AXIS-PX Specifications


PHOTONIS bilamellar family: These open tubes use bilamellar optics to provide a subpicosecond temporal resolution whilst maintaining excellent spatial resolution.




Photocathode is interchangeable. The user chooses the cathode material to match his experiment.

Available Ranges (T):   200 ps to 1 ms

Number of time-resolution units in screen (Nt):  675

Single-shot Time Resolution:
                               For ranges > 700 ps: range/675
                               For ranges < 700 ps: 700 fs

~ 1/2 ps (depending on the properties of the laser)



Readout type: -30 °C Thermo-Electrically-Cooled Digital camera
CCD chip size: 2048 x 2048 pixels; 27 mm x 27 mm
Digitizer: 16 bits
Coupling to streak tube: 1:1 Fiber optic taper
Cooling: 15-20 °C cooling water is required for the CCD camera




Normal sweep
The sweep crosses the whole screen and ends outside.







Timing mode
The sweep always remains in the screen. It is used to synchronize the streak camera to the experiment.







Focus mode
The slit image is positioned at the center of the screen. The sweep trigger is disabled. This mode is used to align the experimental setup and to adjust the incident light level.


Operation Pressure:  < 1×10-5 torr at the cathode

Vacuum flange:  ISO-200 for re-entrant camera,

                      ISO-160 for High-End camera
                      or custom flanges

Storage chamber:  Each x-ray streak camera comes with a small vacuum chamber equipped with a UV window for calibration or storage.



AXIS-PX is an autonomous system that is operated locally by connecting a monitor, a keyboard and a mouse.

It comes with an internal computer that controls the streak tube supplies, the sweep circuits, monitors voltage stability, performs different self tests and safety checks. It can also control other optional peripherals via the USB port.

All required software comes pre-installed on the system. It is used to:

- Control whole system and acquire images
- Control the laser system (optional)
- Plot lineouts along time axis or space axis
- save image in different formats

Remote control over Gigabit Ethernet :

- “Windows Remote Desktop”
- Web base GUI
- High level device servers (TANGO, OPC, etc…) are available.
