Paper Abstract

General overview of the past and present, and a look to the future of high-speed image-tube photography are presented. It is emphasized that it was in Russia that the truly first image-converter tubes were specially designed for the needs of high-speed photography more than half a century ago. In the middle of the fifties E.K Zavoisky and S.D. Fanchenko conducted the very first investigations of ultra-high frequency electrical discharge with experimentally reached and tested 10 ps time resolution, and theoretically predicted the 10 fs ultimate time resolution threshold for high-speed image-tube photography. Our own, almost half a century long, laser-oriented researches in this area have confirmed better than 100 fs time resolution in high-speed image-tube photography as well as theoretical possibility of photoelectron bunch compressing down to the sub-femtosecond level.
