Paper Abstract

This paper describes the methods used by EG&G Energy Measurements to characterize a streak tube. Both radiometric (QE, uniformity, gain, linearity, extinction ratio, opacity) and resolution (static, spatial, and temporal) tests are covered. The signif-icance of these measurements with respect to streak camera applications is discussed. The results of the measurements on a streak tube designed and built by EG&G Amador Valley Operations are included as an illustration.
