Paper Abstract

We present a brief summary of the state of the art of high-bandwidth time-resolved electronic imaging applied to the measurement of single-transient events. A key subsystem of these instruments is the electron-tube based streak camera with a CCD imager readout. The new of streak camera/CCD imagers are evolving into very high-fidelity scientific instruments for the study of single-transient events. The capabilities of these new subsystems are summarized. Several applications of complete instrumentation systems for the time-resolved imaging of ionizing radiation events are presented. These applications range from imaging techniques that convert ionizing radiation to the optical domain through the radiation pumped flourescence of carefully chosen fluor materials to integrated-optic techniques that rely on sophisticated micro-fabrication of optical wave-guide devices. Included are applications of tomography that allow us to efficiently extend the information bandwidth of our measurement systems.
