We developed a hard X-ray split-and-delay optical (SDO) system based on Bragg diffraction in crystal optics for generating two split pulses with a variable temporal separation. To achieve both high stability and operational flexibility, the SDO system was designed to include variable-delay and fixed-delay branches. As key optical elements, we fabricated… CONTINUE READING
