Title: Co-timing UV and IR laser pulses on the OMEGA EP laser system

Abstract

Independently managing the timing of individual beams so they all arrive at the target within 10 ps of the time specified by the principal investigator is crucial to the success of experiments on the OMEGA EP Laser System. A streak camera is used to observe the x rays emitted when the laser beams strike a gold target, while an optical streak camera is used to measure the UV pulses. Furthermore correlating the signal on the two instruments gives a timing accuracy of 10 ps for the short pulse IR beams and 20 ps for the long-pulse UV beams.
