Paper Abstract

Single shot streak and synchroscan image converter cameras were designed and manufactured within the framework of the Proschen joint venture. These cameras are characterized by an experimental temporal resolution better than 1.7 ps at a streak speed 6 x 10 exp 9 cm/s and a 1.08 micron input radiation wavelength. The synchroscan camera is capable of providing the temporal resolution of about 5 ps in CW mode at a 328 MHz repetition rate. Test results reveal that both cameras provide reliable technical parameters and are easy to operate and handle. Applications include laser development and analysis, laser plasma research, solid state physics, optical communication measurements and analysis, time-resolved spectroscopy and nonlinear optics, and laser ranging and pollution control.
