Abstract

A prototype device capable of splitting an x-ray pulse into two adjustable fractions, delaying one of them with the aim to perform x-ray photon correlation spectroscopy and pump–probe type studies, was designed, manufactured, and tested. The device utilizes eight perfect silicon crystals in vertical 90° scattering geometry. Its performance has been verified with 8.39keV synchrotron radiation. The measured throughput of the device with a Si(333) premonochromator at 8.39keV under ambient conditions is 0.6%. Time delays up to 2.62ns have been achieved, detected with a time resolution of 16.7ps.
