X-Ray Optics for SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory
A unique energy-tunable X-Ray Split and Delay Device (XRSD) will be installed on-beam at SLAC to manipulate the time structure of hard x-ray pulses. The XRSD will take the incoming beam and split it. The primary beam will be passed through the device and the secondary beam will pass through a chain of Laue and Bragg reflectors. These two beams will then be recombined as they exit the device. The XRSD will provide maximum possible time delays of 9 ns between the pulses of the primary beam and the delayed beam.
