    We have developed an x-ray streak camera system with a temporal response of 2 ps (full width at half maximum). The response of the camera was measured using soft x rays in the 30 eV to 1 keV energy range which were emitted from a plasma created by a high-intensity, subpicosecond laser pulse. A...
