Paper Abstract

A 14-bit scientific CCD camera has been used as a medium-speed streak camera through software modifications that preserve the high dynamic range and excellent sensitivity characteristic of these cameras. Line shift speeds as short as 8.1 microsecond(s) ec are found to have no detrimental effects on image quality as long as light intensity is kept below saturation levels. Examples of streak images from shock tube studies of reactive systems are presented.
