Paper Abstract

The paper describes our research on infrared-sensitive streak camera that adopts a streak tube with a complex photocathode which consists of a membrane made of up-converting material (one kind of ET material) and a S-20 photocathode. The up- converting screen is able to convert 800 nm - 1600 nm infrared radiation to visible light. The peak values of the converting efficiency are located at 1165 nm for CaS:Eu, Sm and 1060 nm for CaS:Ce, Sm. We obtained a novel result of time resolution of the ET-materials and the streak camera attains time resolution of 12.3 ps for CaS:Eu, Sm screen and 8.4 ps for CaS:Ce, Sm screen.
