Paper Abstract

The physical principles of a streak camera capable of sub-femtosecond time resolution are discussed. In place of the traditional photocathode, a distributed medium is used. In place of rapidly changing voltage applied to the deflection plates, we use an electromagnetic field propagating in free space. The basic technology for the sub-femtosecond streak camera is the same as that of above-threshold ionization experiments that have become very common in studies of strong laser field interactions with atoms.
