Advanced, Ultrafast SLIDER Deflector

The SLIDER deflector is capable of sweeping a beam of light at world record deflection rates. When coupled with an ordinary camera, SLIDER can record waveforms with picosecond resolution and high dynamic range. With a rad-optic transcoder added to its front-end, the system can be used to record X-ray signatures and optimize laser fusion energy systems such as the National Ignition Facility at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory.
