Paper Abstract

A. large photocathode streak tube has been developed. The useful photocathode length is 25 mm and the useful output screen size is 32.5 mm(spatial direction) x 40 mm(temporal direction). The tube has time resolution of about 8 ps and good deflection sensitivity of 60 mm/KV. As for dynamic spatial resolution, amplitude response better than 12% at 20 1p/mm referred to the photocathode has been obtained to input square-wave test pattern over the area of 80% of useful output screen at light wavelength of 800 nm. Also the geometric distortion less than 1% and the shading of output signal less than 15% have been obtained.
