ABSTRACT
X-ray studies with femtosecond time resolution will become highly important within the next few years because of a confluence of scientific interest and availability of sources. This poses a challenge to instrumentation: Rapid switches and more elaborate devices for coherent control of x rays will have to be developed, and detectors will have to cope with high intensities and orders of magnitude better time resolution. Especially for detectors, a transition from classical electronics to optical control will become necessary to achieve few-femtosecond time resolution. The purpose of this article is to highlight a few of the challenges and to give a few examples of high-speed purely optical control and detection of x rays. © 2002 American Institute of Physics.
