Paper Abstract

New two-dimensional sweeps of streak cameras; elliptical and high-dense sine-curve scans, have been demonstrated to be an excellent and useful method expanding its performance and application. These have been accomplished by applying a sinusoidal or ramp voltage to the second deflection (horizontal) plate of a synchroscan streak tube. The elliptical scan has enabled direct and time-resolved spectroscopic measurement of highly repetitive optical-pulses in the range of several gigaherts and long decay times in the order of one-half the sweep period. The high-dense sine-curve scan has allowed measurement of fluctuations of pulse-shapes and pulse-intervals in a highly repetitive pulse train, and jitter among driving signals of a mode-locker, pumping pulses and oscillating pulses of an actively mode-locked dye laser.
