Paper Abstract

CSC (Containerized Streak Camera) photonic analyzers have been under development by Thomson-CSF/DSE/DT/S.ASI since 1986 on the initiative of CEA-DAM-BIII (Research Center at Bruyeres-le-Chatel) for the study of the multi-phenomena related to nuclear experimentations characterized by bandwidths of greater than 1 GHz. After a review of this analyzer's features, which are inherent to its use in container, and the necessity of digitizing and transmitting the data within the exceedingly brief time preceding its destruction, we shall take a look at the developments in CSC design and the two succeeding generations of hardware. The present version and its characteristics will be given in detail. The presentation of a few experimental results show that the bandwidths actually measured on the 15 measuring channels are of the order of 1.5 GHz over the entire sweep for an analysis duration of 30 ns. Our paper will end by the definition of the targets set for the third generation CSC, now under development.
