Figure 3
Scheme showing the relationship between bunch interval, duration and the shutter opening of 2.5 µs for both operating modes. In the multi-bunch mode, 315 ns-long bunches consisting of 160 trains come every 85 ns. In the several-bunch mode, single bunches come every 23.6 ns. As the ion-collection time was as long as 33 µs for IC1 at 3 kV, the X-rays coming through the 2.5 µs window can be considered as a single X-ray pulse.  [article HTML]
