Paper Abstract

In this paper, a universal streak camera will be introduced. This camera consists of time distortion-compensated optical lens, vacuum ultra-violet-sensitive streak image tube, multi-function sweep circuits and CCD real-time readout system. It can work in 3 modes, including single shot with temporal resolution of 1.2 ps obtained, synchroscan, dual scan and circular scan mode also. The temporal resolution of 1.2 ps can be achieved in single shot mode. The operation frequency can be 82 MHz, 164 MHz, 200 MHz and 300 MHz for synchroscan and circularscan modes. In this case, the temporal resolution is operation frequency dependent, usually in the range of 1 - 3 ps. In dual scan operation mode, one deflector is driven by sine wave circuit, another by a slow ramp circuit. The scan speed along the fast and slow axis is 5 cm/ns and 26 cm/microsecond(s) -2 cm/microsecond(s) respectively.
