Paper Abstract

We briefly describe the origin, history, and present status of pico/femtosecond image converter photography in Russia to which the late Professor Boris M. Stepanov devoted his talent, knowledge, and life. Taking into consideration the scientific background toward the end of the forties to the beginning of the fifties, we show why this field of technology has attracted people and resources, who was involved in this activity, where R&D work and manufacturing facilities were established, and when and how this area was developed. The present level of pico/femtosecond image converter photography is described in general and future trends are outlined.
