Many researchers require a high resolution trigger to synchronize their data gathering electronics with the arrival of a synchrotron radiation pulse at their target. At the Advanced Light Source (ALS), this requirement was initially satisfied in a case by case manner by running Heliax cables from the Accelerator Timing System[1] to the various experiment locations. This approach was less than ideal due to poor risetimes, cost and difficulty of running Heliax cables, and the inconvenience of… CONTINUE READING
