Paper Abstract

Thomson-CSF is introducing a new camera, the NUCAM TSN 906, especially designed for measurement of ultra-fast light phenomena. The camera features a temporal resolution of less than three picoseconds over a broad light spectrum by the utilization of photocathode S20, S25, or S1. This camera is designed for ease of use in industrial as well as laboratory environments. In previous camera generations, the image was either acquired on photographic film or through adaptation of an external video camera. With the TSN 906, electronic image acquisition is standard, creating ease of use. NUCAM integrates an intensified image converter tube, 512 X 512 pixel CCD sensor, image memory and GPIB in the same case. This original design produces a very compact and low cost camera. The camera can be used locally by displaying the image on a video monitor or remote controlled via a microcomputer installed with an interface board and control software.
