Paper Abstract

Presented are the experimental results on femtosecond streak tubes measurements in dynamic mode. Several streak tube prototypes have been manufactured, with either distributed coaxial-strip line or capacitor-type photocathode-accelerating mesh assembly. Electrical field transition time in the photocathode-accelerating mesh gap was investigated. Tubes have been tested in a variety of regimes, in order to define the most efficient ones. Dynamic parameters of the developed femtosecond streak tubes were measured inside the streak camera prototype. The following dynamic parameters were evaluated: ultimate time resolution, dynamic range, and signal/noise ratio, spectral range, input sensitivity, streak speed and its nonlinearities, etc. The developed and optimized femtosecond streak tubes represent a reliable basis for design of streak cameras being required for photographic recording of ultrafast events in laser and plasma physics, time-resolved spectroscopy, laser interaction with matter, laser fusion, etc.
