Paper Abstract

The channel capacity is the number of bits of information that can be encoded in a single sweep of a streak tube. Imitating the standard practice for digitizers, this channel capacity could serve as a figure of merit for comparing the relative values of streak tubes. An expression for tube channel capacity is developed in terms of its main performance characteristics.
