Paper Abstract

The accurate characterization of high-power multi-beam laser systems requires an optical streak camera system having a linear dynamic range of 1000. In this paper we wish to show that the classic definition of streak camera dynamic range tells very little about the system linearity. A problem of flare in the recording system limits the linearity to < 100. Data from two commercial streak camera systems is presented.
