Paper Abstract

Philips streak tubes which are fabricated using the transfer technique which is considered to be an ultimate method for producing multialkali photocathodes are considered. Particular attention is given to the main steps of the S1 photocathode process setup, the photocathode sensitivities obtained on cells and streak tubes, the photocathode stability vs. time, and static and dynamic characteristics of the P 510 and P 520 streak tubes. It is concluded that the general performance of the P 500 streak tubes is appropriate for applications in molecular physics, detonics and ballistics, velocity measurements based on Doppler laser interferometry, electrical discharge research, and fiber optic communications.
